Grocery stores now sell avocados for as little as $1 each as shoppers stock what is considered some of the most expensive seasonal fruits.
Coles and Woolworths have cut prices on the popular Australian-grown Hass avocados, which often cost more than $5 each.
“We are entering the peak of the Queensland Hass Avocado season so there is an abundance of high quality avos in our stores at great prices,” Mark Watson, senior category manager of ripened fruit at Coles, told Daily Mail Australia.
“Currently, avocados are only $1 in all Coles supermarkets nationwide. This will run until closing time on Thursday.’

Avocado lovers shared the news on social media, with many saying they went to their supermarket to buy the fruit in bulk.
“This is a memorable day. Record this day in history folks… And there’s nothing wrong with them. I can now die happily,” one shopper wrote.
Daily Mail Australia has asked Woolworths for comment.
Known for their creamy and smooth texture with a nutty and sweet finish, Hass avocados are usually in season from May to January.

To speed up the ripening process of avocados, place the unripe fruit in a brown paper bag along with an apple or banana for two to three days until ripe.
Storing a whole, ripe avocado in the refrigerator will help maintain optimal ripeness for two to three days until you are ready to eat it.
Sprinkle the sliced avocado with lemon juice or vinegar to prevent it from browning, place in cling film and remove all air and store in the refrigerator.
