Baby Avocados, The Latest Miniature Fruit

Impractical? Maybe. Adorable? Definitely.

People freak out over miniature food items as if they're newborn kittens. And following in the footsteps of the adorable, hysteria-provoking "cucamelon" are baby avocados, the latest teensy produce that's making people lose their minds. You might need five to make a proper sandwich, but they're definitely cute, and that's really all that matters, right?

Mini avos were first found in the UK back in January, when megastore Marks & Spencer was the first to start selling the Spain-grown "babycados."

But a recent stateside sighting at the Santa Monica's farmers' market has reignited the frenzy:

Some commenters "can't even handle it," while others are confused ("Wait what??? Avocados smaller than eggs??"). So keep an eye out for these "#cuteAF" fruits, but in the meantime, order some baby vegetable seeds and start your own miniature garden.
