Hass avocado is a popular variety of avocado that is known for its creamy texture and rich, nutty flavor. It is named after Rudolph Hass, a California farmer who first discovered the variety in his orchard in the 1920s.
Hass avocados are oval-shaped with dark, bumpy skin that turns from green to purplish-black as it ripens. They are high in healthy monounsaturated fats, fiber, and various vitamins and minerals such as potassium, vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
Hass avocados are commonly used in guacamole, salads, sandwiches, and as a topping for toast or burgers. They are also delicious when grilled, baked, or fried. When selecting a ripe Hass avocado, look for one that is slightly soft to the touch and has a deep, dark color.
