(RNN) – Holy guacamole, that’s one big avocado.

The avozilla (yes, that’s what they're calling it) is a variety of giant hybrid avocado originally from South Africa, but now being grown in Queensland, Australia.

They can weigh up to 4 pounds each. Compare that to your average California avocado that checks in at about 6 ounces.

"They're massive fruit ... quite a lot larger than your average avocado," grower David Groves told Nine News in Australia.

The monster fruit is a cross between two species of avocado – the huge, watery West Indian avocado and the smaller, buttery Guatemalan variety.

Along with their big size comes a big price. In the U.S., they would sell for about $9.

But, hey, it makes a ton of guacamole so it might be worth it.
