'Holy guacamole!': Australian grower breeds giant avocado

  • 01/06/2019

Whether you need to feed the masses with a bowl of guac or super-size your smash, a Central Queensland grower is making avo lovers' dreams come true.

He has bred a giant avocado they're calling the 'Avozilla'.

They cost fifteen dollars each and they're five times the size of regular avocados.

Weighing in around 1.3kg - five times the size of a normal avocado - the 'avozilla' has returned for another season.

Prices for the enormous avos vary from store to store.

Some go for $12 AUD, but grocers at the Adelaide Central Market retail them for around $23 AUD.

Feed a family

Avocado lovers at the market were astonished by the monster fruit.

"That would feed a whole family in one." one told 7NEWS.

"If you have guests at home, it would be perfect," another said.

Not genetically modified

Grown at family-owned fruit farm, Groves Grown Tropical Fruit, in Central Queensland, grower David Groves said the avozillas were not genetically modified.

Those wanting to try the heavyweights will have to get in quick, with only a limited number available across Australia.

The giant avocados have been shipped to Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

However with supplies short, its home state of Queensland looks likely to miss out.
