Avocados are single-fruit berries. They’re oval-shaped with smooth, buttery flesh and green or purplish-black skin. The two most common varieties grown in Australia are the Shepard and Hass.
Hass avocados have a rough, pebbly skin and change colour during the ripening process, from emerald-green through to purplish-black when ripe. Rich and creamy in taste, Hass is the most common variety of avocado
Roughly mash fresh avocado for guacamole, chop it and add to salads, use it as sandwich spread, blend it into a smoothie or whip it into a dessert, such as a chocolate mousse.
