The Reed avocado's most distinguishing characteristic is also an obvious one. It is the largest of all known avocado varieties. Its thin green peel contains a hefty fruit that can easily weigh a pound or more. Its flesh is a pale golden yellow, its weight clinging to its fragile shell. It has a relatively large seed and seed cavity, but its robust size allows it to still carry a substantial amount of edible flesh. Its flavor and texture are both superior in quality. The texture is buttery, almost maintaining a melting quality. Its flavor, bold, rich, nutty and even buttery. Regardless of its obscure commercial availability, it is perhaps the best tasting avocado and considered so among avocado growers.
Reed avocados have a very short peak season from September to November.
