The green avocado is a type of avocado that is less common in the world than its counterpart, the black avocado. However, the black avocado is by far the most popular and widely consumed type of avocado. It accounts for 80 percent of all avocados cultivated in the whole world. While the black color on avocados sometimes does happen as a result of the fruit ripening, other types of cultivated avocados do remain green in color as they get ripe. There really aren’t that many differences between green avocados and black ones.
The Florida avocado has some great uses, but the Hass avocado makes more sense for most culinary purposes. The big difference: Florida avocados have significantly less fat.
Now, less fat might sound good, but the fats found in Hass avocados are actually very healthy. Avocado oils are considered heart-healthy and good for your skin. Florida avocados have the same kind of fats but in much lower quantities.
