Looks like. You can see fibers at the bottom. Ken Love
claims that Hawaii have the biggest avocado collection in the world ?
Poor Lol . Colombia germoplasm is one of the biggest. Ask Fairchild garden. Or better google it in case didn't answer your email.
This has been discussed before in other threads. The avocado in that link is probably Russell. Fiber on the bottom is not enough to identify a cultivar as many can have that. The Pura Vida has a much longer neck than that, up to 3 feet long. The photo in this link looks like same fruit that was advertised in Miami Fruit.

The foliage is quite unique in shape, reminds me of the Catalina rounder leaves.

The leaf color on yours looks much different than mine.

The dark leaves in the picture are Hass and the light colored leaves are Pura Vida.

Here is my Pura Vida tree, and 2 consecutive shots of a developing fruit on it right now. There were 2 fruits on it and one of them aborted.

Years ago, Ledesma gave me a few scions,  I grafted them but they did not take,  which was strange since, another variety grafted well, and Avos are usually easy to graft.   sure would like to get a tree, now that I am living in Fla.
