M&S launch stoneless avocados - and says they could prevent 'avocado hand'

M&S launch stoneless avocados - and says they could prevent 'avocado hand'”

Considering "avocado hand" has proven itself to be one of the most perilous injuries of our time, the stoneless avocado could revolutionise our brunches.

"Avocado hand" is apparently the bain of many middle class kitchens, prompting claims that the fruit should carry warning labels.

An improper use of the knife while trying to remove the fruit's inner stone can cause life-changing tendon and nerve injuries, the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) said.

However, Marks and Spencer have come up with the ideal solution.

Love them or hate them, there's no denying an avocado is a popular breakfast food.

The so-called Cocktail Avocados are entirely edible, which means you can eat the skin as well.

"Charlotte Curtis, M&S agronomist, says: "We've had the mini, the giant, ready-sliced and we're now launching the holy grail of avocados - stoneless".

This new breed of avocados will also be smaller than the ones we are used to ranging from approximately five to eight centimetres in length.

'This awesome fruit has been on our radar for a couple of years and we're very excited to have finally been able to get hold of some for our customers to try.

But this year M&S has sourced a small number of the avocados exclusively.

The fruit is grown in Spain and is only availably in December due to its short season.

Sainsbury's introduced something similar all the way back in 2005, but the rare nature of the fruit means it is usually only used by Parisian chefs.

M&S even recommend that they are nice deep fried...but that might be a step too far for us!

The humble avocado pear has proven so wildly popular with customers in recent years that supermarkets are experimenting with diversifying the fruit.
