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

    It's true.

    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!

    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.

    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.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    Sting uses English as a second language with high skill, so we sometimes forget how bizarre and hard to understand we make the language. ;-)

    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.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    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.
