The Reed Avocado

The Reed Avocado

Reed avocados are absolutely delicious and far superior in texture and taste to the Hass avocado. They are big! When you cut one open, you will notice the pit of the Reed and the pit of the Hass are almost the same size–which means more meat in a Reed. Its thin green skin contains a hefty fruit that can easily weigh a pound or more. The texture is buttery, almost maintaining a melting quality. Its flavor is bold, rich, nutty.
