Giant 4-Pound Avocado Dubbed The ‘Avozilla’ Could Honestly Feed A Whole Group Of Millennials ??

Who needs a house when you have avocado toast? Especially if the avocado in question is the size of a small studio apartment?

Farmers in Australia are now producing the holy grail for millennials: a giant 4-pound avocado that they are calling the “Avozilla.”

Oversized avocados have been spotted in the wild before, but the Avozilla is the first commercially produced crop of giant avocados available in stores.

Although larger breeds of the fruit are known to lose flavor due to a higher water and lower fat content, farmers like Dave Groves say the Avozilla tastes just as good as its regular-sized counterpart.

“Often big fruit and big vegetables don’t taste as good as the smaller ones but in this case, they really do. They are a very good eating fruit.”

The humongous fruit sells for less than $9 (AU $12) in stores, but for now, you can only find it in Australia.

The Groves family has 2,400 Avozilla trees, but only 400 are currently producing, and as of yet, no one is growing them in the United States.

U.S. farmers may want to get on top of it though; otherwise, we could have a serious problem on our hands.

After everyone stopped drooling, people started to wonder how the Avozillas grow to be so big.

In reality, the Avozilla originated in South Africa, a cross between West Indian and Guatemalan avocados.

Once the mystery was solved, everyone went back to drooling and dreaming up uses for the Avozilla.

The Avozilla may be the answer to all our avocado needs, but you have to wonder, has science gone too far?
