Cocktail Avocados are available in mid winter.
Avocados are members of the family Lauraceae, which includes the plants that produce edible cinnamon, camphor, sassafras and the herb laurel (bay leaf).
Cocktail avocados have two major distinguishing characteristics. They are shaped like a small cucumber and they are void of the usual central avocado pit. The fruit's skin is thin, deep green, speckled and smooth. The flesh is quite like most avocados, smooth, creamy, pale yellow with a lime tone closer to the skin. The fruit, which grows to about 3 inches in length, is entirely edible.
Avocados evolved as a species from animals eating the fruit and "distributing" the seeds. Avocados have been growing wild for at least 13,000 years though they have been cultivated by humans for about 9,000 years. The Cocktail avocado evolved as the result of an unpollinated flower on a Fuerte avocado tree. It is a subtropical fruit originally cultivated in Chile. The Cocktail avocado is among hundreds of varieties of avocados that rarely find themselves in an actual supermarket, rather they are grown in limited production throughout South and Central America as well as California, where you will find them at farmers markets during the Winter months.
