If slicing or pitting an avocado proves dfficult, there are also pre-sliced avocados available to avoid injury and it is important to keep in mind to move the hand holding the avocado when removing the pit.

Marks & Spencer is launching the British high street's first stoneless avocado.

The fruit grows to be about five to eight centimeters long, and looks like a miniature cucumber.

According to The Independent, the stone-free avos are formed by an unpollinated avocado blossom, and not genetically modified.

Last year, M&S brought us the mini and giant avocados.

The fruit develops without a seed which in turns stops the growth, creating a small, seedless fruit. While smaller than other traditional avocado varieties, a huge part of the cocktail avocado's appeal is that it is almost impossible to wound oneself while cutting it open, given it has no pit and possesses an edible skin, meaning it can be eaten whole.

This variety is grown in Spain and a limited supply is available only during the month of December.

The flesh is much like a normal avocado - smooth and creamy, pale in colour and rich in flavour, the supermarket claims.

The harvest is usually reserved for a Parisian food market where they are snapped up by chefs, but this year M&S has secured a small atch to sell in the UK.

This process makes them small and elongated.

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

Curtis said she expected them to sell out quickly, adding: "My top tip is to try them deep fried".

Brits' love of avocados shows no sign of slowing down, with Iceland making waves earlier this year with their launch of frozen pre-sliced avocado.

But now M&S has announced that selected stores will be releasing a stoneless version this December throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
