Mexicola avocado is available at some farmers markets late summer until 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). Avocado varieties are identified as being either Type A or Type B. Mexicola Grande is an A variety. Type A varieties have flowers that open as females in the morning and close in the afternoon. The following afternoon the flowers open as a male. The male sheds its pollen and closes a few hours later, never to open again.
The Mexicola Grande avocado has a glossy, near black, thin easy-to-peel skin. The flesh is creamy and almost delicate in texture. Its flavor is rich, nutty and smooth. The fruit contains a large imposing pit, especially for its size. Regardless of their name, Mexicola Grande avocados are petit in size and weigh an average of four ounces to eight ounces.
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. There are three races of avocados: Guatemalan, Mexican and West Indian. While each has distinctive features, cross-pollination permits the development of unlimited varieties. The Mexicola Grande, is indeed, native to Mexico. Its parent tree is the Mexicola avocado.
