For Cuban Americans, Catalina avocados are symbolic of exponential growth. This Persea americana variety was naturalized to Florida, where it remains a Hispanic American food staple. Catalina avocados bear large fruit, which ripen on the tree, maintaining a bright green color. This West Indian avocado cultivar bears fruit with yellow, creamy flesh. It has a sweeter flavor profile than the Mexican cultivars sold commercially. With peak fruit maturing from Summer to early Fall, enjoy Catalina avocado for a tropical immersion that’s unique to the vibrant cultures and people of the tropical lowlands.
