Tesco trials miniature avocados

Tesco will be offering its customers small, snack-sized avocados as well as regular-sized varieties for a limited period as part of plans to tackle food waste.

The rare, mini avocados or Zilla Eggs are about a third of the size of regular avocados and are 24 times smaller than the giant sized Avozilla avocado, which Tesco has sold in a number of stores in recent years.

For a trial period, the egg sized fruit will be available in packs of six in recyclable egg style boxes to prevent them from getting spoiled.

Tesco avocado buyer James Cantoni said: “At Tesco we’re passionate about working in partnership with our suppliers to tackle food waste from farm to fork.

“These Zilla Eggs are a brilliant way to offer customers great tasting, high quality avocados, which previously would have been rejected by growers because of their size.”

Tesco said demand for avocados soared by more than 30% at its stores last year as the food graced millions of Instagram feeds and become a breakfast staple.

The Zilla Eggs are available until stocks run out in 100 stores and in boxes of six priced at £2.
