Commodity: Cocktail Avocado
Cocktail avocados are the seedless fruit of the fuerte avocado. Similar to regular avocados in flavor, they have a buttery taste and a creamy green flesh. Unlike the regular fruit, they are shaped like a cucumber instead of being more rounded. Cocktail avocados generally measure about 2 ½ inches long and are about 1 inch in diameter. They can be eaten raw on sandwiches or salads, or pureed for fresh sauces. They’re available from California in the winter.
