The marketing of different kinds of avo is so fascinating--there are _legions_ of varieties of avocado, some watery, some so fatty they're almost rubbery! It was great fun in Hawaii, where there were so many different kinds to compare and contrast.Sounds like you had a good time with yours too!
I love the SlimCado's nuttier taste. I think you said it best. There different kinds of avocados. This is the lighter one.
@Ela -- I would love to visit Hawaii. Someone was just telling me today about eating raw cocoa right off the tree, in the pods! I love raw cocoa beans (I buy the essential living foods brand which they carry at my local co-op) -- the idea of the fresh sticky pods on the tree is just mouth-watering.
Wow, this is making me consider trying the Slimcado for a second time.... Thanks! :)
I live in Portland Or. and am looking for some of these I loved it, and cannot find any. Any Ideas???
What brings you here? trying to determine when to cut into this huge slimcado I just bought. What are you thoughts? I like adventure in dining, but don't want to waste my $2 on an unripe fruit. Do you consider yourself a raw foodist? No. Approximately how much of your diet is raw? If yogurt counts as raw then maybe 30% on a good day. Do you consider yourself healthy? Relatively, considering I was not breastfed... Trying to reduce my toxins. What would you like to see more of on this blog? This is the first I've seen. You did a great job with this post. Much more informative than anything else I found. Will you be back? Quite possibly. Is this too many questions? Quite possibly! but I like your spunk!
Hey there Lindutch. :DThe Slimcados seem to be ripe at about the same softness that a mango is ripe. It's hard to compare to a Haas avocado because the skin on a Haas is so much thicker that it alters how soft it feels. The Slimcados I've bought get speckled, like bananas, as they ripen.DDJ -- No idea how to get them if the supermarket doesn't carry them. I generally only go out of my way to get dry/packaged goods online. Although I have considered ordering certain produce in large sums from an online source. But it's hard to judge produce quality if you're not there in person. You can make a request at most supermarkets to stock something.
