Has anyone heard of this variety in Australia? I saw this video on Facebook and though they do not mention the variety I'm guessing that may be what it is?? https://www.facebook.com/ABCRural/videos/10160293361655411/?hc_ref=ARQczDkEgl1t1J9RW0YNxL5qhIBSdX5TOz4lhydCgOkxBjnMjpFIwCRP4cyKXbO38M8&fref=gs&dti=447193975415704&hc_location=group

Hi Scotch

Giant avos are still a novelty in Australia because obviously of their size which is a logistical nightmare for big supermarkets. So we can only sometimes see them in fruit shops. I remember reading somewhere that the giant avos were named Post Office avocado because the original tree was grown near a 'well you guessed it' Post Office in South Africa which was imported by one of Birwood's Nursery manager who was originally a South African. Another name that comes to mind is Avozilla which is only available to Californian growers and another monster avo variety weighing up to 2.2 kg (5 lbs) is the Daily 11 from Florida, USA. Slightly smaller than Daily 11 are Choquette and Hall also Floridans.

So there you go for info about super-size guacamoles.

Btw, I haven't read or heard about a humongous avo named Bernicker except for a modest sized black sapote.

Happy gardening :-)
