The sign at the grocery store called it a lo-cal avocado. Seems like it’s called a Spinks avocado. According to Wikipedia, “larger and rounder, with a smooth, medium-green skin, and a less-fatty, firmer and fibrous flesh; the Spinks avocado was shown to be more resistant to freezing than other avocados. They also proved to be the second-longest-lasting in storage out of the ten varieties tested.”

Verdict: It wasn’t bad. It didn’t have as much flavor, its color was a bit more yellow tinged, and it was quite watery. If you had grown up eating these avocados, you would think they are great. But, for me, I’d say that I’d pass on it. I don’t know what the calorie content is in comparison to a Fuerte or Hass, but the savings would also come from the fact that we didn’t finish eating it. Fuerte remains my favorite!
