The Shepard avocado is green skinned, and milder in flavour in comparison to other avocados. It is much more resistant to darkening, once cut than other varieties. The Shepard avocado is only grown in Australia. Shepard avocados are the perfect alternative to butter. Perfect for making guacamole. Add diced avocado to salads and meats. To prepare: Cut round the avocado length ways, going right into the stone, then pick it up in both hands and twist to separate the two halves. Replace the stone in the remaining fruit and cover the whole tightly with plastic wrap. To store: Allow avocados to ripen in the fruit bowl, hastening the process if necessary by enclosing them with a ripe banana in a paper bag.
