Yes that’s right, I impulsively bought an avocado while shopping in Kensington Market this weekend. It was just so strange looking, just different from any avocado I had ever seen before to the point where I actually thought it was a mango at first. The person I was with said Erin, I think its an avocado. I was like no, it cant be – it’s a mango. It was way larger and lighter in colour than any avocado I had ever seen. We asked the man behind us stocking the bananas and he confirmed that it was in fact an avocado. I was fascinated and had to buy it, I wanted to see the difference, if any there was between this one and the Hass avocado we typically find here.
I got it home and cut it in half, it was a little watery and tasted really mild compared to the Hass. It was still creamy in texture but just not as flavourful on its own, so I decided to make an avocado cream with it for the fish tacos I am going to make this week – I used a small food processor and blended garlic, juice of half a lemon, salt, pepper, and 1 tbs of yogurt ranch dressing.
Now the big question is what kind of avocado is this? I have looked at many different pictures and types on the Internet and I still have no idea what this one is called – does anyone know?
