Hass avocado is perhaps one of the most famous avocado types and considered by many to be the best. The Hass avocado is a variety of avocado with dark green, bumpy skin. When ripe, the skin becomes a dark purplish-black and yields to gentle pressure. The flavor is quite intense, and the flesh is very creamy, perfect for guacamole.
When it comes to nutritional content, Hass avocados are higher in fat than other varieties, which gives them a richer taste and smoother, creamier texture. 80% of avocados consumed in the world are Hass avocados, meaning all other varieties make up only a small proportion of the remaining 20%.
