With smooth skin? Can I use them the same way as the little, dark, bump ones?

Hi. It's just a different variety. They are called Reed avocados. I use them just as I would the Hass (the ones you normally use). You get more bang for the buck. You can make a ton of guac with them too. :)

There are so many varieties of avocados out there to choose from. Depending on where you live and what is available at your grocery store. An avocado is an avocado...for all intents and purposes.

The green ones are not as flavorful as the brown ones. I noticed that the brown ones have a more buttery flavor. The brown ones are also lower in calories than the green ones.

There are several varieties of avocados. There are a couple that are green with a smooth skin. One variety (I can't think of the name) is like buttery silk inside! Any variety can be used interchangeably, I would try it plain first to get the full effect though.
I find the big green ones more watery than the brown ones. But they are right, you get more for your money!

I was born in California and they grow a lot of Haas Avocados there (the bumpy ones). I prefer the taste of those...maybe because I grew up with them. Now I live in Florida and the grow the big green ones with the smooth skin. I don't care for them. It's all about taste though!! It's like apples...some you like and some you don't. I'd say try it...it may become your new favorite food!
