Avozilla: The giant avocado variety causing a stir

The avozilla - a new giant variety of avocado is attracting fans from around the world.

In Australia, farmer David Groves has started growing the fruit - which is about five times the size of a standard avocado.

Since 2000 the global production of avocados has doubled to meet the surging demand.

Mr Groves said: "Everybody wants to know all about where they came from, and how we got them so big."
