Some say they taste like soap. I consider them to be the best fruit God ever created.

Something of interest !!!

The Best Way to Peel an Avocado

Did you know there are many ways to skin an avocado? Well, there are, and how you de-skin your fruit can have a bearing on the nutrients you get from it. In 2010, the California Avocado Commission issued guidelines for getting the most out of your avocado by peeling it the right way:

"California-grown avocados contain 11 carotenoids. According to USDA's Agricultural Research Service, avocados contain a complex package of phytonutrients, including carotenoids that may provide numerous health benefits. Carotenoids appear to protect humans against certain cancers, heart disease and age-related macular degeneration.

The UCLA research showed that in California avocados, the greatest concentration of beneficial carotenoids is in the dark green fruit of the avocado closest to the peel.

'The Commission's public relations outreach to encourage consumers to 'nick and peel'

First, cut the avocado length-wise, around the seed
Holding each half, twist them in the opposite directions to separate them from the seed
Remove the seed
Cut each half, lengthwise
Next, using your thumb and index finger, simply peel the skin off each piece

So this means we should NOT scoop out with a spoon
eat avocado and help your heart and brain !!!

Guy in a truck came by selling the green slick-skin (not Hass) avocados, at a buck apiece. You couldn't touch these in a store for that price. Certainly not at WalMart. I only bought five, but that's because I am the only one in my family who will eat avocados.

I never did take to the avocado, but my grandfather had 11 acres of them in the 1970's so I knew how to grow them back then.

wildcat659, I believe the Haases from Mexico never stop coming, their southern weather close to the Pacific Coast is probable suited for year long harvesting, whereas Peru and Chile one have one Season for their avocadoes. Just like Ca.
