This supermarket might have the solution for 'avocado hand'

These "cocktail avocados" also have an edible skin, meaning you can just chomp right away into it, without the need to peel and chop.

The cocktail avocados are small elongated fruits, measuring around five to eight centimetres in length.

Calling the invention the holy grail of avocados, food researchers from retailers Marks & Spencer have started selling "cocktail avocados", ideal for the clumsy lover of healthy fats in your life.

If slicing or pitting an avocado proves dfficult, there are also pre-sliced avocados available to avoid injury and it is important to do not forget to move the hand holding the avocado when removing the pit.

The result of an unpollinated avocado blossom, the fruit develops without a seed, which is why they don't grow very large.

Cocktail Avocados are available in selected M&S stores now and throughout December. The flesh is much like that of a normal avocado - smooth and creamy, pale in colour and rich in flavour. 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.

Although these "safe" avocados are new to M&S, they're not exactly revolutionary.

As M&S' agronomist, Charlotte Curtis, told the outlet, "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 ahold of some for our customers to try".

"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". My top tip is to try them deep fried'.
