'Brogden' avocados are simply one of the finer things in life. With a smooth-as-silk flesh unlike other avocados, and a high oil content that gives them the rich flavor characteristic of Mexican and Guatemalan varieties, 'Brogden' is an avocado-lover's avocado. While the other avo varieties I've been profiling here are pure Mexican subspecies, 'Brogden' is a cross between Mexican and West Indies types. So the skin on this one is a little thicker than the skin on pure Mexican varieties, and the tree can take a hard freeze, but not quite as much cold as the pure Mexi-cados like 'Del Rio'. But Brogden fruits get larger than the pure Mexican types, up to at least 10 ounces (280g). This variety seems like an extremely promising market fruit both for existing avocado-growing territory, and also for areas slightly too cold to grow commercial avocados. More people should experience this wonderful fruit! Did I mention it makes an out-of-this world guacamole?
