Sir Prize is a Mexican hybrid that is similar to Hass. It is highly sought after for its large fruit and small seed, having the most flesh-to-seed ratio of any commercial avocado. Fruit is pear-shaped, like the Hass, and is often mistaken for a Hass. The tree is also upright in form, and is a cold-hardy variety that makes its fruit available in late fall through winter, capable of growing in colder climates than the Hass.

Characteristics:

  • Type B
  • Weights 10 to 20 ounces
  • Has thinner, less-pebbled skin than Hass, which is almost black when it’s ripe
  • Skin is easy to peel from the flesh, which has a buttery, high-oil texture
  • Flavor is nutty and sweet
