Can you guess what these are?6

Baby cucumbers? Zucchinis?

No, but good guesses. 

These little babies are avocados!

I found them at Lennox Head Markets a few weekends ago and got the whole bag for $2.50. The lovely farmer lady told me that these grow on avocado trees when the flowers aren’t pollenated and therefore have no seeds inside. As you can see above.

The flesh is still delicious and creamy as you would expect from a regular sized avocado, just easier to slice through. I think they would be great in school lunch boxes.

Have you seen these before? I expect if you have an avocado tree you have!
