Everything’s cuter when it’s mini. From watermelons to Stan Smiths—there’s just something inherently adorable about a tiny copy.

But when that mini version doubles as a delicious and portion-controlled superfood? That’s just plain brilliant.

Enter the mini avocado, your answer to the age-old half-an-avocado serving size dilemma. (Seriously, how do you store the other half of your avocado—or resist eating the whole thing?)

The adorable mini-fruit, dubbed the “babycado,” first sparked a frenzy when it was sold at Marks & Spencer, a UK-based chain, earlier this year. Now it’s become a thing stateside, thanks to an Instagram post from a Santa Monica farmers’ market.

But looks aren’t everything. These avocados are said to be tastier than their larger counterparts, with a richer, sweeter, and creamier taste—as if they could get better.

And if you can’t seem to find a babycado at your local farmers’ market, maybe try searching for their alternative name—gator eggs.

Scroll down to see the cutest babycados on Instagram.
