Experience

The Bacon Avocado is harder to find and best enjoyed directly from the farm. Bacon Avocados do not taste like bacon; they are named after Mr. James Bacon who hybridized the specialty avocado in 1954.

Tasting Notes

Bacon Avocados are smooth-skinned and less oily than Hass avocados. While these avocados do not taste like bacon, they are bright and creamy in texture and are known for a rich and smooth flavor.

About The Harvest

Rick makes the farmer’s market experience possible everyday at his Los Angeles markets, and now direct on FruitStand. Rick’s staff is treated like family. Whether they work at the market or on his farm, they know Rick and his business partner, Alejandro, value their local community. This is why Rick partners with family farms all across Southern California to supply his markets. The Bacon Avocado is harder to find and best enjoyed directly from the farm. Rick’s Produce can’t wait to ship your avocados fresh from his farm in Fallbrook, California.

Mr. James Bacon hybridized this specialty avocado from two Mexican varieties of avocados in 1954, giving them their name. While these avocados do not taste like bacon, they have a delicious creamy texture much like the familiar Hass Avocado. The healthy fat of the avocado combines well with acidic fruit and vegetables. Their flavor is light and fresh, and less oily than a Hass Avocado. Enjoy your Bacon Avocados on toast, as guacamole or in a salad.

All produce is shipped direct from Rick’s Produce using FedEx two-day shipping to guarantee freshness. Information on how to use, store and recipe ideas can be found by clicking here.

Your fruit may arrive ripe and ready to eat. As needed, allow them to ripen on the counter at room temperature, as refrigeration will stop their ripening. Check avocados daily. Ripe avocados will keep for two to three days in the refrigerator. The Bacon Avocado is ready to eat if it gives slightly when you apply gentle pressure. When cut open you’ll reveal its light yellow flesh with a rim of green near the skin. The skin will peel effortlessly as it is thin. 

While these avocados do not taste of bacon, they are a delicious creamy texture much like the familiar Hass Avocado. The healthy fat of the avocado combines well with acidic fruit and vegetables. Their flavor is light and fresh, and less oily than a Hass Avocado. Enjoy your Bacon Avocados on toast, as guacamole or in a salad.
