Limited supply of Giant Avocados back by popular demand

12th September, 2019: Tesco Ireland has announced that, due to popular demand, a very special delivery of giant avocados, known as ‘Avozillas’, will arrive in 70 Tesco stores around the country and will be available to purchase from Saturday 14th September. Due to a limited supply of these giant avocados, which are approximately 5 times the size of a regular avocado, customers are encouraged to snap them up this weekend, while stocks last.

Priced at just €4 and exclusive to Tesco in Ireland, these game-changing giant avocados are ideal for making a family sized portion of guacamole and could boast enough avo-smash to cover a week of brunches!  

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 Guatemalan varieties. As these trees are not available for commercial sale, there is very limited supply of the fruit, so avocado fans are encouraged to pop into one of the participating Tesco stores, while stocks last, to avoid disappointment.

John Brennan, Fresh Category Director, Tesco Ireland, 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 70 of our stores across the country on Saturday morning and will be available this weekend while stocks last.”
