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

I love avocados--especially the very smooth, shiny-skinned ones we call "alligator pears" in Louisiana--they grow as big as small footballs.

Listen, they are great for breakfast, I love to salt a half with the skin on, and just spoon out the goodness, before anything else early AM.

S Florida Avocadoes are HUGE, and in 90% of the time tasteless !!!

When you get one that is tasty, it's like a Home Run Party !!!

The ones I brought with me from my sister's tree in Central Fla are smaller that those from here in the Miami Area, but as tasty and similar size to the haases from Ca, Mexico, Chile and now Peru

I don't care for the Florida avocados. They have a strange fiber in their meat.

Bad Petroleum, large or small, Hass is the only variety we get here. BTW, avoid Walmart's aquacates. They are usually not too good.

Again, Quebec is NOT a place where you will ever find people that love avocadoes.

They dont grow there and the Quebequians wouldnt know the difference between a GREAT Avocado and a Bad one.

Mindy probable got FED a nasty one.
