There are a zillion types of avocados, but it is rare to see more than Haas in the Bay Area.
From what I've read, Florida avocados have more water and less oil than California varietes.
The huge Booth avocados for $1.89 each looked pretty with the shiny bright green skin. I finally cut into it today and liked it quite a bit. It has an almost papery thin skin. There are several varities of Booth avocados. The interior was different than this photo. It was a pretty pale lemon yellow ringed with light green.
It was at perfect ripeness so I enjoyed it very much. A littlle lighter but nicely flavored. It would make a nice quacamole. So anyone wanting to try something a little different, IMO, it was well-worth the oruce,
