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

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.

ONE of the most annoying things about eating an avocado is taking out the stone.

They are the result of an unpollinated avocado blossom, which develops without a seed and in turn stops the growth, giving a small, seedless fruit.

Avocados are packed with essential vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E, vitamin K, folate and antioxidants and contain more potassium per gram than bananas.

Avocado-lovers don't have long to get their hands on the revolutionary fruit though - they're grown in Spain and only available during December.

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

"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".

'We know they will be in demand and we've only been able to get our hands on a limited amount so make sure you get them while you can.

Charlotte continued: "They're ideal for snacking and lunchboxes as they can be eaten whole but can also be used for a handsome garnish or in a salad".

M&S even recommend that they are nice deep fried...but that might be a step too far for us!
