Marks and Spencer has launched a stoneless avocado, potentially averting future chaos when it comes to "avocado hand" - an injury sustained while cutting the fruit.

A stoneless variation on the beloved classic, cocktail avocados offer up the same great taste (and benefits!) of a normal avocado WITHOUT that pesky little seed. As if you were even considering not mashing it up with some lime, chili, and pepper, and slathering on toast.

Cocktail Avocados are available in selected M&S stores throughout December, while stocks last at £2 per pack. Now, are there any recipes to incorporate them into your Christmas dinner.?

This new breed of avocados will also be smaller than the ones we are used to ranging from approximately five to eight centimetres in length.

The "cocktail avocado" is a small avocado which is 5-8cm long and grows in Spain and is only available during December. M&S said stoneless avocados were usually sent to Paris, where chefs use them in high-end restaurants, but the retailer had managed to source a limited supply this year.

"This awesome 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 humble avocado pear has proven so wildly popular with customers in recent years that supermarkets are experimenting with diversifying the fruit.

In a high street first, the launch follows the success of the mini and giant avocados previous year.

No need to risk slicing your hand open scooping the meat from inside or whacking away at the pit - you can just chop it up and toss it on a salad, or eat it whole as a snack. "My top tip is to try them deep fried!"
