Stop what you're doing, you can now buy STONELESS avocados

Now Marks and Spencer is the first supermarket to sell a seedless cocktail avocado - which could help avoid all those pesky avocado-related injuries.

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

Thankfully the "Cocktail Avocado" - a small elongated avocado approximately 5-8cm in length (yes, it's a tad on the small side) - is here to save the day.

"Avocado hand" is apparently the bain of many middle class kitchens, prompting claims that the fruit should carry warning labels. Meanwhile the flesh is "smooth and creamy, pale in colour and rich in flavour".

M&S agronomist Charlotte Curtis said: "This wonderful 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".

The fruit is grown in Spain and only available during December, where usually it is sent to a Parisian food market and purchased by chefs to be used in fancy restaurants.

'This unbelievable 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.

Not only does the cocktail avocado have no stones, its skin is also edible, meaning the whole fruit can be eaten.

The slimmer fruit is the result of an unpollinated blossom and develops without a seed. "My top tip is to try them deep fried!"

Everyone's favourite source of healthy fats is now available in stoneless, miniature form for £2 a pack in M&S.
