Florida Avocado

Often called Slimcado due to their reduced fat content, Florida avocados are distinct in both appearance and flavor.  These avocoados, as the name suggests, are grown in Florida.  They are large, smooth-skinned and do not turn black when ripe, however, they do yield to pressure when ripe, much like a hass.  Their key-lime colored skin encapsulates a golden flesh.  This flesh is moist and tender and contains a large central pit.  Over the course of the season, there are many different varieties in play, but all are marketed and sold as Florida avocados or Slimcados. (see the varieties listed below)
