Nimlioh Avocado

November 7th, 2009 | Fruit Maven

If you like to quote, “Did your man deliver, or did he deliver?”, then this is the fruit for you!

APPEARANCE Rating: ★★★½☆

This is a huge sphere shaped black avocado – bigger than a softball, nice pale green to yellow flesh

AROMA Rating: ★★½☆☆

None

TEXTURE Rating: ★★★★★

The outside is really hard, even when ripe (so you need to test it by sticking a toothpick in to it) but the flesh is perfectly creamy and soft, spreads with a butter knife. No strings like some avocados.

TASTE Rating: ★★★★★

Smooth condensed avocado flavor. This is the most avocadoey (a technical term) avocado that I have ever had.

OVERALL Overall Rating: ★★★★☆

I would write my overall thoughts here but I can’t stop the stream of tears coming from my eyes because I have no idea where I will ever find another one of these. I have to launch the search for Finding Nimlioh! I am in creamy, dreamy avocado love.

NOTES

I turned this avocado in to guacamole and it seriously lasted for days and days.  This one humongous avocado could easily feed six people if none of those people are me because I am not sharing. No – find your own Nimlioh. This one is mine.
