Harvest Avocado

November 19th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you tend to like the exotic looking girl who really is no more interesting than the plain looking girl you grew up with, then this is the fruit for you!
APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★★½

Average sized avocado with black and gorgeous red skin – reminds me of a black widow if black widows were the size of a human fist.  Yikes – sorry no one wants think about that right before eating something.

AROMA Rating: ★★½☆☆

None

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★½☆

Creamy and soft with some strings. A little more dense than most with a slightly dry, pasty mouth feel. Also the peel was really thick, had-to-sharpen-my-knife-and-still-struggled thick.

TASTE Rating: ★★★½☆

Somewhat bland as far as avocados go. Nice but nothing to holler about.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

I like that this avocado has spunky coloring.  That kind of thing is going to get me every time. I mean aren’t we all a little bored of girls in little black dresses at the party – let’s see more  red sequins please and maybe some feather boas! But I digress.  Other than that, this avocado is ho hum de dum.  I had to doctor it up with garlic and salt in order to eat it and even then, some was left in the bowl .  That is extremely sad for an avocado at my house.  Next.
