In Search of Hass Avocados

madgreek | Dec 11, 2007 03:47 AM

Why is it impossible for me to find actual California Hass avocados in Nothheast Ohio? I mostly see ones grown in Mexico, and they taste terrible. To me, they taste more like banana than avocado, and commonly ripen with black oxidized dots in the meat. On the tag, they don't even say Hass (although the supermarket's tag above the bin always says Hass). Even the "Hass" labeled ones at TJ's aren't quite right (better than anywhere else, but not as good as say, 2 years ago) Is there something wrong with the California crop? Do I have any hope of finding good Hass avocados again?
