The Reed Avocado : a profile - by Greg Alder
The amazing Reed Avocado
Reed avocados are green cannonballs. They are big and round and heavy. Although not as thick and hard as the skin of a variety like Nabal, Reed’s skin is shell-like such that it is ideally suited to scooping the flesh out with a spoon.
And a Reed half is a ready-made bowl for its own guacamole.
The flesh of Reed is among the creamiest and smoothest of any avocado I have eaten. The eating experience always reminds me of firm, avocado-flavored butter.
