Tesco Ireland will have a special delivery of giant avocados known as Avozillas in a select number of stores from Friday.
These giant avocados are perfect for making a family sized portion of guacamole or nutritious breakfast avocado toast. Avocado toast has been taking over Instagram feeds over the past few months with Google trends reporting searches for avocado toast increasing up to 31 percent since the start of the summer. This nutritious breakfast option is quick and easy to make by simply smashing up avocado on wholegrain bread with a dash of olive oil and sea salt. Avocados contain healthy monounsaturated fat and are high in fibre and nutrients including Vitamins B, C, E, K and potassium.
Tesco Ireland Fresh food buyer Denise Foley commented “This limited stock of Avozillas is exclusive to Tesco and is being introduced following a successful trial in UK stores last year. They are extremely rare and come from just four trees grown by one of the world’s biggest suppliers of avocados in South Africa. Deliveries will be going into a select number of stores on Friday morning and will be available this weekend while stocks last.”
Avozillas are naturally produced and not genetically modified. Just four trees produce the Avozilla supply in the lush forest outside of Modjadjiskloof, Limpopo, South Africa. The Avozilla is a cross between two types of avocado; the West Indian and Guatemalen varieties. As these trees are not available for commercial sale, there is very limited supply of the fruit at the moment so avocado fans are encouraged to pop into one of the participating Tesco stores while stocks last to avoid disappointment.
Tesco Ireland stores that will be stocking Avozillas from €3.69 include:
Bloomfields, Dun Laoghaire
Baggot Street Upper
Dundrum Town Centre
Maynooth Extra, Kildare
