Natural food stores like having several kinds of avocados, and their customer base often looks for avocados that taste good but are not commonly seen, Stair said.

“People look for things that are different,” he said.

Every avocado variety has its own niche based on flavor or price, said Dana Thomas, president and chief executive officer of Index Fresh Inc., Bloomington, Calif.

Index Fresh is fond of the reed — a fall variety with excellent taste — but the pinkerton has excellent taste in winter, and the bacon and other varieties have their own followings, as well, Thomas said.
