This is a great way to snack on avocado, especially for those on chemo. Coming from a hard peel fruit, the flesh of a freshly opened avocado is safe to eat, as long as you’ve taken care to wash the avocado well before cutting into it.
I love eating avocado like this. My favorite is with just a sprinkle of good sea salt. If you think it’s odd to drizzle honey on it, think again.
In Brazil, they eat avocado for dessert with sugar and cream, so go for it!

Hass and Florida avocados are quite different in taste and texture. I enjoy them both but encourage you to try both yourselves and see which you prefer. Here’s a quick guide:
- Hass avocados have a gnarly dark green, sometimes almost brown skin, and are about the size of a pear. They are ripe when just soft to the touch and are rich and buttery tasting.
- Florida avocados are bright green with a smooth skin and are much larger than Hass. Like Hass, they are ripe when they just soft to the touch. Florida avocados have a lighter, sweeter almost watery taste than Hass, and their flesh is less creamy and rich.
