Haha, no but now I'll have to watch it again even though it's my least favorite WA film. dancing

I just went to the nursery like a dummy without any research, saw sweet lime label hanging and thought sweet, sweet lime.

Just reading about it now, it is a cross between citron and bitter orange and its technical name is "limetta" or "mosambi".
Apparently native to Iran and India, hence I thought it was called Persian Lime but oh no, that's Bearss lime. confused

Are those haas? I get haas from the farmers market and they look almost exactly the same but the skins are nearly black instead of green like yours, and your flesh looks a little different (more water content, or lighter green flesh). To be overly specific, Hilltop Canyon Farm avos in Carp. They're the best I've ever had and I eat at least one per day.
Yeah, not to turn it into a WE/film thread but you got it and I sort of agree (the outdoor camp one was my least fav) cheers

Fresh is a relative term with avocados because they don't ripen on the tree, so you can't eat them "fresh".

Which is great because you can pick them all year at your leisure, depending on the need.

The ones I picked today will probably be ready in a week to 10 days.

But yeah, you're missing out man. &#129361;&#129361;&#129361;&#129361;&#129361;&#129361;&#129361;



Yeah, I get the thing about not being tree ripe, but I always think it's best to have the food at its source. Like, I don't think you can properly eat pineapple anywhere but Hawaii. Tomatoes, blueberries, watermelon....New Jersey. Peaches....Georgia, etc.

No this is Fuerte, much bigger and meatier. I have Haas too but it didn't produce that well this year, it decided to have a growth spurt instead. shrug

We already turned the Keto thread into the avocado and citrus thread so turning it into the WA thread wouldn't be the worst thing. smile2

All of that stuff is keto unless you're actually eating the lime and not just using the juice.

Avocado is a keto/low-carb/etc staple

How do you figure that. thought

Sweet lime juice is pure sugar.

If you eat it at least you get fiber.

It keeps constipation at bay.


Cholesterol too but that doesn't rhyme.

That's just silly. You can find all of those locally grown at the farmer's market and some grocery stores. I bought papayas, blueberries and passion fruit grown in Goleta on Saturday. They also grow pineapples at that same farm. "Fresh avocados" is kind of a silly term since they don't ripen on the tree. Mexico and CA ship "breakers" everywhere, and they're every bit as good as "the source" when they get to you, maybe still unripe.

Certain fruits produced in certain states are trash. California blueberries, for example. I wouldn't feed them to a goat.
