I love hass avocados, it's my favorite varietal of the twenty-some types. In California, where 85% of the avocado crop is the hass varietal, you can find trees growing on the streets, and limbs heavy with fruits.

Richer, more buttery and nuttier and most other varieties, hass avocados are an excellent and highly adaptable fruit, showing up in several different ethnic cuisines such as Japanese, Mexican and across European plates.

If you are interested in preparing hass in a guacamole, here is a detailed recipe, make sure to stick with hass for best results.
