It has a pale green flesh with creamy texture has a nutty flavor.

Melissa's Tropical Avocado is a large green-skinned, water-based variety that is available year-round out of the Dominican Republic. The pale green flesh of the fruit features that classic creamy avocado flavor you know and love but has a slightly firmer texture when compared to Hass.

The firm flesh of Melissa's Tropical Avocados makes them great for slicing and adding to sandwiches or salads, or dice and mix into your favorite ceviche recipes.

The large size makes this an excellent variety for families – you can spend less time prepping multiple avocados when you can use one Tropical Avocado. If you're someone who likes to eat avocado toast daily, you'll love the slow oxidation. You can use part of the avocado, and then store the rest without it turning brown too quickly.

Melissa's Tropical Avocados are hand-selected for excellent quality. Choose soft, ripe fruit and avoid bruising and sunken spots. Refrigerate ripe or cut avocados covered for up to 5 days.
