    I prefer Floridas, but I never buy them because they're too big. I hate leftover avocados.

      The Haas - little black ones. Nuttier taste. Seem to ripen up faster if you have to buy them hard. Perfect size.

      Hothouse - larger green ones. Acceptable taste. Take ages to ripen - like a week, not a year. Kind of too large for a single serving.

        We only have one kind in the store. They are haas I think, smallish.

          I like the Haas. They're creamier and denser to me. The Florida kind are sort of watery.

                    I live in FL... I can get FL avos pretty much free during season, I still won't eat the damned things.

                    They are a LIE!
                    A watery nasty LIE!

                    Also, they aren't creamy at all... and they make baby jesus cry.


                    I'll pay for a proper black Alligator pear any day of the week.
                    Fortunately I can still get those pretty cheep too.



                    *caveat: ONE thing that FL avos might do better is a classic FL grapefruit and avocado salad because they hold their shape, don't go all slimy, and they watery texture works in THAT context. I always make it with shrimp... and it's the ONLY use for those avos. But I'll still use Haas if they are on hand and arrange the ingredients neatly on butterhead lettuce leaves so the softer avo pieces don't squish.

                        You seemed to have missed a relevant portion of the program...

                          Amen. Haas only here. I grew up on a ranch that had a Haas farm as well, so I got a rude awakening when I had to start paying for them!

                            Don't understand what you mean what program?

                              Darling, "portion of the program" was an allusion to my slightly theatrical and wee bit dramatic answer...
                              You could just read it as "you skipped an important part of the story" (that whole baby jesus crying thing, which was obvious hyperbole... I hope).

                              But at this point I'm guessing that you are just being obtuse on purpose, and it's all good.
