Google to the RESCUE...

Whenever the subject of Bacon avocados comes up the first question is always “Does a Bacon avocado taste like bacon?”

Bacon avocados are named for Mr. James Bacon, who hybridized them in 1954. This year is the 60th birthday of the Bacon avocado! That’s plenty of reason to celebrate with a big bowl of guacamole made with Bacon avocados!

Bacon avocado trees are found as far north as the Bay Area of California because this variety of avocado tree can tolerate cooler weather. According to Gary Bender of UC Cooperative Extension,

“Bacon is mostly Mexican with even more cold tolerant than Fuerte. As a rule of thumb, Hass fruit can stand temperatures as low as 29°F for four hours before showing freeze damage in the fruit, Fuerte fruit can similarly withstand temperatures to 26-27°F before showing damage, and Bacon can withstand temperatures as low as 25°F before showing fruit damage.”

mullinspices, never in me life had I heard that. Is it from the Pacific Islands, California, Mexico ???

For over 41 yrs in Florida it's my very first time I came across than "name", and in Chile and Mexico where I travel a LOT, nothing close to variety either.

Live and learn !!!

>>We used to have an avocado-colored refrigerator.<<

In the late 70's while in Largo (Pinellas County, Fl) our whole kitchen appliances including the over the stove exhaust metal intake were ALL avocado green too.

The sign of the times then.
