    Default California avacados

    I usually make guacamole using Hass avocados but California avocados were on
    sale so I bought them instead.
    Anybody know if they will they work as well as the Hass in making guacamole?
    thanks

    Hass are Califiornia avacados. They taste much better than Fuerte which is
    what you have.

    California avocado means it was grown in California. Hass is grown in
    California and I prefer it for most uses, but if I'm going to smush it
    up for guacamole I don't care what variety it is - I just want it to
    be ripe. http://www.avocado.org/avocado-variety-browser/

    There are well over 400 varieties of avocados grown.

    If it's a variety called "California" that might make it a judgment call.

    While living there briefly, I wouldn't dare make guac using Florida avos.
    While larger than most, they were very watery and wouldn't make good guac.
    I had such high hopes, dashed in an instant.

    The Hass avos sold here in Pennsylvania produce markets are imported from
    Mexico. They're just as good as any other crop grown anywhere else.

    The biggest mistake you, sharkman, made, aside from trolling without
    trying, is misspelling "avacodos" in the subject line.

    What that means is, as far as Google and other search engines are
    concerned, is that the Internet community will never correctly search out
    this thread. It's like it never existed.

    The reason I leave the subject line in the body of my posts is so they
    can also be spell checked. My Usenet client (xNews) is smart enough to
    only paste the first line of my entire post into the subject line and
    paste the full entirety in the body of the post. I just grew tired of
    deleting it.

    For all the negatively opioniated posts I get against me, at least they
    can all spell my name right!

    A few years ago a large Florida avocado was being touted as "lower fat"
    (I don't remember if it was Fuerte or not.) It was lower in fat and
    MUCH lower in flavor. The ad campaign didn't last long and there didn't
    seem to be much demand for the product because I no longer see them around..

    You've obviously never eaten guacamole, you likely haven't a clue what
    it is.

    No, Sheldon is right. It doesn't matter what kind of avocado you use
    for guacamole, if you have TIAD. In fact, he's posted a number of times
    on this group that it tastes just as good with no avocado at all, just
    anything green and mushy.

    Do you mean Florida avocados? California avocados *are* Hass avocados
    (at least you spelled the later correctly).

    There are other avocados grown here in California but yes, the Hass
    is the most common one. I wouldn't classify it as the "California"
    avocado though. I have seen Bacon avocados, and a few others at
    various markets.

    There are several varietals of avocado, but any can be used for
    guacomole and no one can tell the difference. It's near impossible to
    differenciate when mashed with no ingredients added, all one can do is
    guess.

    According to Wiki, 95% of the avocados grown in CA are Hass.

    Bacon avocado? Are they vegetarian?

    Gotta disagree. California avocados are creamy, buttery and flavorful.
    Florida varieties are...not.

    It's harder to tell the difference once you add all the garlic,
    jalapeno, salt, etc. but tasted plain there's a big difference.
    Hawaiian avocados are even tastier and huge in comparison.

    There are several varieties and they're grown in several locations
    world wide... many sold in CA are not grown there. The avocado is not
    even native to CA. The original CA Hass is believed to have
    originated in Guatamala.

    Again, once they're mashed no one can tell which one comes from where,
    and they're always different ripeness too so you can't go by
    texture... you have as much chance of guessing which avocado in mashed
    avocado as you do which peanuts in PB.

    It's not surprising you've never tried a Florida avocado and don't
    have clue WTF you're talking about.
