Hialeah Red avocado (review)
« on: October 30, 2017, 06:26:50 PM »
got the tree on September, 2013, from a member here (BENDERSGROVE). i think it was 5-7gal , got planted the following year
it has always flower but didnt let it hold fruit until last year,
they are very creamy low oil, and seems to keep color if mix with lime and salt (didnt last long at the table)

Anything else you can tell us about the flavor besides "creamy?"

Looks to be fairly in line with a standard florida avocado. Low oil, more watery, larger size.
Continuing my journey to disprove those who say "You can't grow that in the desert" since 2013.

I think Brogden is better personally. Has some actual oil content to it and nuttier flavor.

Hialeah Rec is just a typical West Indian avocado flavor.

Ismael looks similar it is cross with Hass or Guatemalan according to Carlos but it can not withstand your wet climate .
