These large green avocados are sold in my local store in Canada and are labelled “Bruce Avocado” . I have tried to google Bruce Avocado and nothing ever comes up. I can’t seem to get any more information about them.
What do they look like?
They are 3-4 times larger than the normal Haas Avocados.
Shape: their shape varies depending on the batch being sold. Sometimes they are pear shaped and other times, they are more or less round in shape.
Colour: They are bright to dark green in colour and never become very soft even when ripe.
Taste: they are mild in taste, not too oily and are great for slicing or dicing but not for making a nice mushy guacamole.
Cost: They are quite expensive. They cost $2.99 each and yet I usually buy a bag of 4-5 Haas avocados for the same price when they’re in season.
Source: the last time I bought them it was indicated they were from Dominican Republic, the one I bought today says they are from Brazil and these ones are not pear shaped,
Help: if you know anything about these avocados please join the conversation. Thanks!
