Zutano avocados are pear-shaped with shiny, thin yellow-green skins that don’t change color when fully ripe and are somewhat more difficult to peel than other varieties. They have light-textured, pale green flesh around a pear-shaped seed. Their higher water content and lower oil content gives them a mild, somewhat watery taste.
Zutano Avocados are not an avocado you would find in the grocery store. Unlike Hass, green avocados stay green when ripe, and consumers prefer the color change, as with the Hass, to know when the avocado is ripe. Hass type avocados are easier to market than green types, regardless of flavor or quality.
