Pinkerton avocados Pinkerton Avocado is a variety of avocado fruit that is named after the avocado grower, John Pinkerton, who first cultivated it in the 1970s in Saticoy, California. This variety of avocado is also known as the Pinkerton Hybrid.
They have an elongated pear shape with green, slightly pebbled, medium thick, and easy-to-peel skin. The medium-sized spreading Pinkerton avocado tree is known to be a heavy and early producer, and unlike most fruits, the avocado does not ripen on the tree and can actually be stored on the tree for several months before harvesting. Avocados act as a nutrient booster, enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients in other foods that are eaten alongside it.
- Their flesh is smooth and creamy, high in oil content, and houses a very small seed, and their flavor is nutty and rich.
- The large fruits vary greatly in size, ranging from 8 to 18 ounces.
- The fruit has a distinctive long, pear-shaped neck that can be up to one-third of the fruit’s total length. The body is round or slightly oval in shape.
- The flesh of Pinkerton avocado is creamy and pale green in color, with a nutty and buttery flavor. It has a high oil content, making it ideal for guacamole and other dishes where a rich and creamy texture is desired.
