(CNN) — Australians can now look forward to an extra-large helping of avocado with their weekend brunch.
The world’s largest avocado has just premiered Down Under. Dubbed “Avozillas” — these souped-up avocados are about five times bigger than a regular one.
“They’re massive fruit… quite a lot larger than your average avocado,” farmer David Groves told 9NEWS.
This giant avocado is on sale at Peaches Fresh Food in Feemantle, Western Australia.

The Groves family have 400 avocado trees on the go, while 2,000 more trees have been planted by another farmer in Bundaberg.
The biggest avocado the farmers have found so far is 1.8 kilos.
Groves reassures avocado aficionados that increased size doesn’t mean decreased flavor or creaminess.
“I’m pleased to say they’re just as buttery as a Shepard or a Hass,” confirms Groves.
“Keep buying avocados, they’re very healthy and very tasty,” he says.
