    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.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    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.

    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.

    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.
