The best I've had are John Herd, Reed, and Carmen Hass.

I'm going to be a bad Californian and admit I don't care for avocados all that much.

If I give a plant care and water I expect flowers and food in return. 8-)

I actually didn't like avocado for like 30 years. Some are much better then others.

Whichever is in season.
Right now it's Fuerte.

As long as they are ripe, I find most any avocado to be excellent, but the unripe ones in the stores I just avoid.

Ben that is interesting, I have now met three people who don't like avocados. All men, I wonder if it has to do with what you grew up with or maybe there is a genetic preference for foods depending upon how well you can digest them,it would be an interesting study.

We are right now eating some Hass windfall because in the past it has been ripe enough and because it is interesting to see exactly when its edible. Plus I hate to give the squirrels so much of the crop. It's not too bad, but it's a little weird. I chop it up and add to quinoa, onions, garlic, celery, tomato, tamari. I'm waiting for Reed, Ettinger, Marvel, Sharwill, the Bacons are also about to be ripe. Hoping to plant some new ones this year, I have heard that Stewart is a good tasting variety. I liked the "Tal" that the UC had at an avocado tour day. They have more varieties unreleased. It would be fun to have a tasting of unusual varieties. If we ever have a bountiful crop year again it would be fun to gather everyone together to trial them in a group. :P
