M&S selling stoneless avocado that could cut out risk of injuries

The Cocktail Avocados come without a seed but don't grow to be very big

Just in time for Christmas, the "cocktail avocado" has arrived.

"Avocado hand" is a condition well known in A&E wards up and down the country.

Scoff if you must, but apparently "avocado hand" is such a prevalent problem in the United Kingdom that the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons thinks that the avocados need safety labels.

As if the revolutionary 'low fat' avocados weren't exciting enough, Marks and Spencer have brought out stoneless avocados.

These avocados are said to taste the same as regular avocados, but they have thin, edible skin. These "Cocktail" avocados could apparently prevent "avocado hand", a reportedly serious injury that occurs when cooks accidentally slice their hands while trying to remove avocado pits.

Forget the knife, these avocados can be eaten whole.

The feature will be available in Google's mobile app and on the mobile web across iOS and Android in the United States. In the past, Google has allowed brands and other personalities to post directly to Google but only with text entries.

Charlotte Curtis, M&S agronomist, said: "We've had the mini, the giant, ready-sliced and we're now launching the holy grail of avocados - stoneless!"

The "cocktail avocado" is a small avocado which is 5-8cm long and grows in Spain and is only available during December.

"They're flawless for snacking and lunchboxes as they can be eaten whole but can also be used for a attractive garnish or in a salad". 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.

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

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

But this year M&S has sourced a small number of the avocados exclusively.
