    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.

    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.
    no probs



    Also are Slimcados the same as Florida Avocados?

    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.
