Your avocado dreams have come true

"Long neck" avocados like these are available through Miami Fruit.

If you often find yourself disappointed in the amount of usable avocado that remains once you remove the pit, this larger variety might be the answer.

Miami Fruits is a fruit stand in Florida that stocks unusual species and ships them to adventurous foodies everywhere.

One of their Instagram posts explains, “This is a long neck avocado grown right here in Miami! It is 100% non gmo and organic. It is not commonly found in the grocery store because this variety in particular is not grown commercially.”

This variety typically grow just over a foot and a half long but they can reach up to three feet. That’s a lot of guac.

Miami Fruits offers the oversized avocados for a short time each summer. A box of 3-6 pounds for $47 and other sizes up to their 35-45 pound “bulk box” at $197.

These long avocados and other rare varieties were reported by Slate back in 2012.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
