If you love Avocados as much as I do, you’ve probably pondered this question more than once. Why does the weight of an avocado differ so greatly depending on how it’s cut? An unpeeled avocado weighs up to 422 grams (about 14 ounces), while a peeled one can weigh anywhere from 165 grams (6 ounces) to nearly 1 kilogram (2 pounds). The answer comes down to how avocados are cut, but it’s also based on a less obvious factor: size.
A bit about avocados
What many people don’t know is that Avocados are a fruit, not a vegetable. In fact, they’re in the same family as apples and pears. They’re also full of healthy fats and protein! The more ripe an avocado is, the higher its nutrient content will be. So when you pick out your avocado at the grocery store, look for ones that are dark green with a little bit of brown spotting on them. When you get home, it’s best to refrigerate them so they last longer!

what does avocado taste like
Avocados have a mild flavor and thick, creamy texture. They go great with a squeeze of lime, but they can also be used as a substitute for eggs, oil or butter in many recipes. Just mash an avocado together with any other ingredients you want to use it in place of. It’s a simple substitution that makes dishes healthier without compromising taste!
