Your avocado dreams have come true
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.
