Morrisons will start selling deformed avocados at a third of the average cost of normally-shaped ones as growing demand and reduced harvests from major producers has pushed up prices in recent weeks.

The supermarket said on Friday that it would start selling the misshapen and superficially blemished fruits for 39p each or £2.40 a kilogramme in the majority of its stores across the UK starting from 15 May until the end of the summer.

Morrisons claims that its offer is the cheapest on the UK market and compares to an average retail price of £1.05 apiece, which is up from 98p last year

Morrisons is sourcing its wonky avocados - Hass, Pinkerton and Fuerte varieties - from South Africa, where growers would benefit from reduced waste, increased crop yields and higher farm incomes.

Mis-shaped fruit and veg tastes exactly the same, it's a crime when farmers are forced to dump tonnes of the stuff

Deadly these in the wrong hands X)

An avocado is an avocado irrespective of its shape, colour or belief. Bargain price. Heat added.

I love avocados

Avocados, the fad of 2015.
Wonky veg, the fad of 2016.

Why put yourself through that when Aldi sells perfectly normal ones for 45p? Or if you buy the 4-pack ripe at home, it works out to even less!

How true!
Quote:
"This week, plastic surgeon Simon Eccles suggested that avocados should carry warning labels following a rise in the number of knife injuries from cutting into the fruit.
Mr Eccles, honorary secretary of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said he treated about four patients a week at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital for wounds caused by an avocado accident, with staff dubbing the injury avocado hand"

Wonky avocado. Otherwise known as, an avocado.

Avacados are 45p @ Tesco, not sure where the £1.05 a piece comes from.

​No one forces them to dump it, they could easily donate it to food banks or soup kitchens. The only reason they are able to dump it is because they over produce and only select the best to sell, the fact we are alive and are not starving to death proves this. As stated before there is a shortage of avocados at the moment so they are selling the one's that would previously not make the grade.

Are these cheap because of their wonkyness?

49p non wonky medium sized Avocado's in Tesco's atm

Fad hag.

Actually I think VR is the fad of 2017.
I can just imagine walking around my virtual avacado before I buy it, then chucking the headset in a drawer until 2018.

Wonky labour policy, the fad of 2017?


Well the last 7 years have doubled the debt, I'm all for a bit of progression the Tories of the last 7 years have been a fraud to what Tories stand for, at least Labour have gone back to their roots! Copying SNP policies lol

Wait till Brexit, there will be a food shortage every week even though it will cost more lol couldn't make it up!

Avocados a fad? They're super healthy AND tasty for you. I'll have one of these sliced up with Salmon and eggs every day!

Yes, a single-seeded berry to be precise.

They are not dumped, the demand domestically in South Africa is huge, anything that is not considered suitable for export is processed and used for either fresh guacamole or frozen product which is then exported for processing, usual bull **** PR from the supermarkets trying to convince the public they are doing the farmers a favour.

They're not perfectly normal, they're all stringy and gross inside.

What 's different between the good wonky avocados and the misshapen and superficially blemished one?

I agree Media rubbish convincing people that that all this mis shaped/blemished produce goes to waste. In reality it is used and always has been in many other products such as soup/ ready meals/ smoothies/ juices etc., where shape and size is not important to the manufacturer Even if it's just used for animal feed , that then goes onto produce the meats and animal products we require, so still a valid use from our perspective .
Some supermarket Wonky fruit/veg is as good if not better than the normal variety and I often buy it, price is not a factor in my decision as the supermarkets are charging almost as much for the Wonky varieties as for standard
To me the Wonky fruit/ veg is just the rebranded Class 2 fruit/veg they used to sell many years ago which then became their economy brands and now called Wonky . Nothing new just marketing .

Are these in season now, I know they come from abroad; When is the best time to get these when there's lots in the markets and also supermarkets ?

as usual from Morrisons

I saw Wonky Avocados supporting Happy Mondays in the late 80's.

Morrison's fruit and veg is terrible. It all seems to have been frozen or stored incorrectly prior to sale.
