That is very strange that you found it at a big box store? The big hype came after there was a article the the CRFG-fruit gardner magazine many years ago and the best attripute was it's cold hardness in Arivipa valley in Arizona I believe it took me a few years before i was able to find scion wood for that variety. Never tasted fruit.

I have heard everything from all hype to it' just ok. Shamus O'leary and Jake Mace seem to have been their biggest cheerleaders. The one place I went to is Phoenix said it was just a Winter Mexican. Who knows. I still want one.

I think i am in the same boat as everyone.   I dont know much about it other than it is a hardy tree to exteme heat and cold.  If anyone have one or has tasted the fruit from aravaipa please comment.  I want to know about productivity, tolerance to root rot, and etc. 
thanks again for all comments.

I got an aravaipa direct from Arizona. It also grew very slow. I assumed because it was grafted in florida on florida rootstock. I grafted onto a mexicola grande and the graft took off. I am hoping it will fruit this coming winter.

Tasted like a Hass to me. The one I tried the fruit from was a vigorous producer. The main draw for them out here seems to be less about taste and more that they're tanks; they can stand up to crazy temps, appear to be okay with the saline solution they call tap-water out here water from the Salt River, and recover from very hard pruning/ storm damage/ dinosaur attacks relatively well.
