Avocados are one of the most popular fruits on the planet. I doubt there is any place where this tasty, creamy guy is hated (can’t imagine anyone hating a cute little avocado).


You may think you know all there is to know about avocados, after all, you eat them almost every year and you know how to make them into different foods and smoothies. However, avocados are one of the few fruits that come in diverse species that boast of many delicious tastes and can be found all over the world.

Avocados are very healthy, especially for women. As a matter of fact, avocados are a super fruit for so many reasons I would love to discuss, but not in this article.

Before I tell you about the many different species of this amazing fruit, let’s take a brief look at an interesting piece of avocado history.

Decades ago, when some early Spanish explorers first journeyed to the thick jungles of the Caribbean and Central America, that found lots of amazing fruits and animals. However, amongst the many creatures and plants they discovered, was a big green tree fruit.

One that has leathery skin, a ball-shaped seed like chestnut and a delicious buttery, lime-green flesh that looked nothing like anything they had seen in their own heritage of edible tree fruits.

For those Spaniards, it was not difficult to see why the locals, from Mexico all the way to Colombia, loved and made use of this creamy, flavorful resource. That was how the avocado became the king of many fruits.

From that time, the seeds of the avocados began to spread around the world, and many different species began to spring up. Avocados have been a staple for thousands of years in America, Asia, and even Africa.

While some of us are used to avocados like the Hass, that are delicious and buttery, there are species like the low-fat Florida avocados that have a rather watery taste.

Anyhow you choose to think about it, avocado lovers are increasing daily and there is no never too much information on the many varieties of this fruit.


Bear in mind that while the many different avocados vary in taste, flesh color, texture, size, and even shape, no single avocado is better than the other. Every avocado is unique and special in its own little way, so let go of the comparison.


Below is a list of 9 popular types of avocados, which is your favorite? which have you eaten? Let us know in the comment box below.

Shepard avocado

This small-sized avocado fruit is a very essential commercial variety in Australia. The Shepard avocado has a delicate smooth skin on the outside, and a pointed pit that is acorn-shaped and buried in a rich, and sticky flesh.

The Shepard is a relative of the famous Hass species, and it has its very obvious similarities in flesh texture but comes with a thicker and almost sticky consistency. In terms of taste, it is super delicious and makes a great addition to a vegetable salad even though it’s a fruit.

The Croquette avocado

This is a popular Florida avocado variety, and is a large-sized species. Choquette avocado may weigh as much as two pounds ( that’s on the big side as an average Hass avocado is about 6 ounces).

However, do not be surprised that unlike many other avocado varieties, the weight of the Choquette is largely made up of water.

That is to say, when you cut this avocado fruit open with a knife, expect it to bleed lime-green juice. People who have tasted this species may describe its taste as an “avocado rainwater.” If you’re wondering what the flesh is like, it’s silky with an extremely mild flavor.

Tonnage avocado

This is my personal favorite. A unique and classic avocado on the exterior, with a slender pear-shaped figure and a nice frog-green pebbly skin with a slender neck that leads all the way to the stem. No doubt, the Tonnage avocado stands out when you taste it — for its flesh is undeniably sweet.

It is also great for people who want a low-fat avocado as its oil content is so much on the low side. It is made up of just 8- to 10-percent fat, but it is nonetheless very buttery, with a mild and savory chestnut taste.


The daly 11 avocado

Like the croquette avocado, the Daly 11 is a huge avocado fruit and a close relative of the oily Hass. the Daly 11 avocado may weigh up to five pounds or even more and it bears a thick skin, with a dense, but flavorful and quite oily flesh inside it.

The MacArthur avocado

This delicious avocado is a voluptuously shaped specie, that is unique with its bulbous bottom that is deeply curved into the stem. It also has very thick and buttery meat, spiced with a naturally nutty flavor, and will keep you craving more with its decadently smooth and creamy feeling when it is fully ripe.

The hall avocado

This variety is another relative of the Choquette avocado and adopts a similar shape and size as it’s a cousin. While the Choquette is a watery guy, the Hall avocado comes with a nuttier, thicker, and drier flesh. But, since it’s still a relative of the Choquette, it still has a juicy and fruity taste.

The Mexicola Grande avocado

This variety may be a small one, but it is no doubt a beautiful one. The Mexicola Grande doesn’t have a green exterior like the others.

Instead, it has a glistening black exterior that is almost paper-thin in texture. The light-flavored flesh of the Mexicola Grande, is slightly fibrous, at the same time, sweet and juicy.

The Anaheim avocado

This one is a huge and softball-shaped avocado that may grow as large as two pounds. The Anaheim has buttery/creamy, sweet, soft flesh with a mild and nutty flavor.

The Hassle avocado

This is one of the most famous varieties of avocados, and also, a very loved one. It has a high-fat flesh, a naturally nutty taste, the texture of almond butter and smooth skin.

All of these make the Hass not only the classic West Coast avocado, but also a highly desired variety worldwide.

The oil content of a hassle can be up to 20 percent or even higher, and its exterior is both tough and durable. If you need an avocado variety that is ideal for shipping, or one that you can use as a scooping cup, this is the one.

So, these are only nine out of the nearly 100 identified species of avocado. Leave a comment below and let us know what you think or share some more avocado information with us.
