Just when you thought avocados couldn’t get any trendier, a Spanish grower is about to blow your mind, because they have found a way to produce pitless avocados. Yes, pitless.
According to Delish, these pitless avocados, dubbed “cocktail avocados,” result from un-pollinated avocado blossoms. They are small, at only about 3 inches, and longer than regular avocados. Also unlike the avocados we’re used to, you can eat the entire thing, skin and all.
Though they may look a little different, they apparently taste just like regular avocados.
Unfortunately, we’re going to have to wait a while to try them out for ourselves here in the States. Right now, Delish reports they’re only being sold in a U.K. supermarket, Marks & Spencer, but the grocer sure isn’t making the wait any easier on us.
“They’re perfect for snacking and lunchboxes as they can be eaten whole but can also be used for a beautiful garnish or in a salad,” Marks & Spencer agronomist Charlotte Curtis told Good Housekeeping U.K. “My top tip is to try them deep fried!”
Deep-fried? Um, OK!
Yes, these avocados do seem pretty fabulous. But there might be a downside. Here’s my question: If these avocados don’t have pits, how do you keep your guacamole from turning brown?
