|Our mystery avocados are getting ripe|
It's a beautiful tree now in our front yard, with lush foliage and actual edible fruit.
The pit may have originally come from a Haas - grocery stores don't seem to stock anything else, for many years now. I remember other types that were offered regularly in the past, for example, the Fuerte. But the Haas is a hybrid, and hybrid seeds don't breed true, so it's difficult to match up our tree with a known type.
