Giant avocados coming to Carlow this weekend!

Tesco Ireland have announced a very special delivery of giant avocados known as Avozillas in eighty stores around the country from Friday, September 14.

The Tesco in Carlow Square is among the stores taking delivery of the mammoth hipster sambo fillers. There is a limited supply of these giant avocados, which are approximately 5 times the size of a regular avocado, so avocado fans are encouraged to snap them up quickly this weekend while stocks last as when they are gone they are gone.

Priced at €4 these giant avocados are ideal for large families for making a family sized portion of guacamole, or perfect for avocado aficionados keen to impress dinner guests with a prawn and avocado starter.

Tesco Ireland Fresh food buyer Ciaran Doyle commented, “This limited stock of Avozillas is exclusive to Tesco. 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 eighty of our stores across the country 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.
