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

These mini avocados are apparently safer than regular avocados because they make chefs less susceptible to a reportedly serious injury called "avocado hand".

Calling the invention the holy grail of avocados, food researchers from retailers Marks & Spencer have started selling "cocktail avocados", flawless for the clumsy lover of healthy fats in your life.

These "cocktail avocados" also have an edible skin, meaning you can just chomp right away into it, without the need to peel and chop.

According to The Independent, the genius invention is the result of skipping the pollination process when growing the avocado, resulting in a seedless fruit. But M&S have sourced a small number of them to sell in-store. The avocados, which only grow to be five to eight centimeters long, have actually been around since 1910.

A stoneless variation on the beloved classic, cocktail avocados offer up the same great taste (and benefits!) of a normal avocado WITHOUT that pesky little seed.

The fruit develops without a seed which in turns stops the growth, creating a small, seedless fruit.

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

Charlotte continued: "They're ideal for snacking and lunchboxes as they can be eaten whole but can also be used for a lovely garnish or in a salad. My top tip is to try them deep fried!"

But now M&S has announced that selected stores will be releasing a stoneless version this December throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
