Talk to me about avocados.
Advertisements [?]
We just bought a new kind of avocado at the grocery store today. The sign said it was a Haas, but online I have found photos that look like it that call it a Reed or a Fuerte. It's large, bright green, firm, and when you shake it, you can hear the pit (or maybe the inner pit?). The web sites I have read have said it is good for making guacamole and that it is not good for making guacamole.

The photo I found online that looks most like the variety I bought calls it a Fuerte, but I'm suspect because it's a shot from a photo studio, not a cooking site. Here's that photo:

So what do I have? And is it good for guacamole? Because that's what I bought it for... but I don't want to break my fork or my arm trying to mash something that's to hard to easily mash.
