What’s that rumbling? No, it’s not your stomach. It’s the arrival of a wave of giant avocados known as ‘avozillas’, which will hit the shelves of Tesco stores across the country tomorrow.  The humongous South African fruit is five times the size of a regular avocado, over seven inches long and weighs around 3lb.

Tesco salad-buyer Emma Bonny (pictured above) says: ‘The avozilla has a fantastic taste with a rich, juicy, buttery texture, and creamy flavour…The ripe fruit is an attractive vivid green colour – different from the darker coloured smaller variety – and its thick skin can actually be used as a serving bowl for guacamole.’ How’s that for a serving suggestion!?

If you manage to get your hands on one of these superfruit, report back on Twitter at @TimeOutLondon.
