Avocado is one of the most popular fruits worldwide. Most diets recommend it because it is a rich source of energy and nutrients, such as vitamin K, C, B5, B6, among others. However, its popularity has led an increase in knife wounds, as many people cut themselves when trying to remove the fruit's seed from inside.
In the United Kingdom, the British Association of Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgeons identified an increase in cutting wounds caused by the use of avocado in the kitchen. Said wounds have even been referred to as avocado hand.
As a result, the British chain Marks and Spencer (M&S) has begun to market a new variety of seedless avocado. The fruit, which is more elongated than usual, can even be eaten without peeling it and will help decrease domestic accidents derived from its consumption.
The cultivation of this new avocado is carried out in Spain, and currently can only be obtained in December. The price of a package of six avocados costs a little less than 3 dollars. Those who have tried it say that it has the same flavor as a conventional avocado.
