I love avocados!
Thanks to my roommate, Alana, I recently became familiar with some of the different varieties. Once I saw the enormous avocado sitting on our kitchen window, I had to ask where the heck it came from. She filled me in….it turns out it is normal.
She saw I was so intrigued, and insisted on taking me to the farm.
She showed me about 13 different types of avocados.
Look at the size of this! The left one is the usual size you see at the grocery store.
