Photos of avocados nearly the length of a human arm have taken the internet by storm.
Florida-based fruit company MiamiFruit posted a photo of the curious looking fruit on social media, which was shared thousands of times.
Hundreds of people have commented in wonderment and confusion
One person said: “now that’s an avocado that’s worth the money haha! Hate how the pip takes up most of the space.“
“That would last you a week,“another person wrote.
The long-necked avocado, as they are now known online, are said to be of the Pura Vida variety.
A Slate article from 2012 says the avocados can average up to 18 inches in length, but some can grow up to 3 feet long. While each long-necked avocado weighs 0.5 to 1.5kg.
The abnormally large fleshy fruit may have only risen to fame recently thanks to the power of social media, but MiamiFruit has actually been selling them for years.
MiamiFruit sell the long-necked avocados in bulk boxes, which contain between 1.5 and 4kg of fruit, starting from about 40£.
But how do they taste?
“Our long neck avocados are thick, creamy, savory and slightly sweet,“ said MiamiFruit co-owner Edelle Schlegel, who adds that a customer will receive a variety of sizes, including some that might be as big as their head, in their box.
