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

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.

Northerners never like them much at all. Chilean and Peruvian Haases beginning to trickle in to the Markets and Veggie Stands.

Unfortunately, all we can get now are grown in Mexico, but the worst from Mexico is better than NO avocados.

Pretty soon the markets will be flooded with the Haases from Chile and Peru, their summer approaching in the Southern Hemisphere.

Better selection, cheaper price$ too.
