The 'Mexicola Grande' avocado is of the Mexican cultivar. It is small and shaped like an egg with a thin, black-purple skin and flavorful nutty flesh. Avocados are eaten in dips, raw, on salads, and we know folks who juice them in their health food drinks.
Avocado varieties are identified as being either Type A or Type B. It is a common misconception that these types refer to male and female plant types that must be planted together for successful pollination.
Type A and Type B actually refers to the life cycle of avocado flowers. In fact, all avocado flowers are both male and female at various points in their daily flowering, making it possible for avocado trees grown in areas with mild climates to be fruitful without the help of another tree acting as a pollinator.
