No. Is that a bad thing? I guess I've had a sheltered life....
A friend of mine moved to the US from Canada in '94. He wouldn't go near guacamole until '03. He'd never heard of an avocado before either.
I really can't describe the taste...rich, creamy..help me out, avocado lovers!
ya know, alone...eh. It's okay. I prefer mine in guac. Although avocado is damned good in Tortilla Soup.
That still doesn't describe the taste, though.
Creamy, herbal, and kinda earthy. In a good kinda way. I miss Rich.
You do a fine job of filling his shoes, Dale.

You're description is spot-on. I can almost taste an avocado.
*mj runs from the room, giggling*
I'm joshin' with you, Dale. I hope I didn't bend your feelers. I would rather dig out all of my toenails with a Phillips screw driver then bend your feelers.
I know you are, Mary Jane.
*looks for a Phillips screwdriver*
A straight blade will work just as well. Might not make as much of a mess but....
Oh Jeeze, is this gonna segue into another spare body parts thing again?
*smacks Dale right back*
Wendy, they have a green, smooth consistency.
A love them or hate them food.
Link to more than you wanted to know!
Sorry, Candace, I missed your question. No, we will be selling to one of the local packing houses. We don't want the grove to be labor intensive or time consuming. That's one of the reasons we chose avos, because like you said, they practically take care of themselves.
Nothing beats a good ol Hass. The hills down here are covered in them, the tree's sure get huge. Candace who climbs up in the tree to fetch those up hi ?
Candace, they import Avo's from Guatamala up there ? We only have local grown and Chile.
No Mexican or other foreign imports allowed down here because of fruit flys and other pests. Chile is clean (pest free) so they are allowed to be sold here. Fuerte's and the other types are just not as creamy and yummyrific as Hass (IMO), but are better than NO Avo's at all.
Good luck Alexis, i do not know that variety, it must be more heat and humidity tolerant?
Wendy it is a Fruit, the rather large seed is in the center.
Candace, throw a couple hard one's in a paper bag with a couple apple slices and in 2 days it is ripe. (ethylene gas i believe)
Hubby gets out the ladder and pole fruit picker, but the tree isn't too big. It's maybe 15-17 ft. tall. Because it sometimes gets some freeze damage, it has kept it from not getting huge. It may get to the point where it does get too big to get the top most ones, though. Don't know...
Yes, I believe most of our avos are shipped in from Guatamala. Though, I think we do see some from Chile too. I agree that Hass are the supreme of yumminess. I have to grow Mexicola because it's the one cold tolerant variety for sale in nurseries here. And I had to search for a while to find one. They're not common. It's a good bet if I planted a Fuerte or another type, I'd be replacing it every 2-4 years. Or it would be so stunted from the cold it wouldn't produce well.
