    I think by 'program' cori is referring to her post not any specific diet program/way of eating etc. The point being that FL avocados lack much of what makes avocados good - the creaminess, the fat, the smooth-fantastic-tasting awesomeness. They are watery and not as pleasant as their haas cousins. It is like why don't I eat frozen yogurt...well, because it is everything ice cream isn't - it is not smooth and creamy and full of yummy goodness. FL avocados are the fro-yo of the avocado world.

        Ahhh...
        Thank you.
        I saw Australia and assumed English and thought he was taking a piss with a bit of dry humor.


        Sorry Sting!

        I really just think they taste horrible and watery compared to the black ones.

          English? Meh

          No idea what are Florida avos. Something parochial I guess

          Here Haas are most common but relatively recent. More traditional avo has smooth green skin and is more watery in flavour. Nothing that a good vinaigrette won't fix
          Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

            Not so, we have both the small black ones and the big green ones. Yes the smaller black ones taste better if eaten on it sown, but the larger green ones are good for making recipes such as guacamole, and even putting with a big salad.

                Just because an avocado is green on the outside doesn't mean it comes from Florida. There was a hybrid developed that has less fat that I think they call the Florida avocado.

                I live on the remains of an old avocado orchard. We have hass, big bacon avocados, pear-shaped green ones, little black ones that are terrible, sort of minty. I like them all except the little black ones. The big bacon ones are less creamy but sometimes I really like them that way, plus it's nice to eat an avocado the size of a kid's football that I didn't have to pay for.

                    Here the most common varieties are Hass and Fuerte (the watery green ones). Hass are much the best, ours are large. We have a male Hass and a female Fuerte in the back yard, along with pomegranates, oranges, apricots, figs, etc. As each season comes we gorge ourselves and supply our neighbors. Sometimes I'm motivated to dry the apricots and peaches for winter.

                      Black avocado is more popular in comparison to green one. It accounts for 80 percent of all avocados cultivated in the whole world.

                        Oh you are so lucky! I would love to have all the dried peaches and apricots I could eat.

                          Yes, the "Slimcados" are the same as the Florida Avocado.
                          Sometimes also sold as the "Lite" Avocado.
                          They are large and smooth and shiny green.

                          And horrible IMO.
                          The texture is too firm and the taste is watery in comparison to a Haas type common small black, pebbly skinned avocado.




                          Sb,
                          I've actually had some of the little minty-ish ones and liked the character of them. They were small almost completely round haas types from Mexico, buttery flesh but a sort of herbal and clean taste. I can understand why not everyone would I guess since most people expect a neutral flavor.
