Avocado with green skin
Green-skinned avocados are not as common or popular as black-skinned avocados, however there are many growers who cultivate this species.
Among the most popular and widespread types of green avocados, the varieties Gwen, Pinkerton and Reed are the most popular.
In terms of aroma and taste, the Gwen variety differs between green avocados.
Green avocados are low in sodium and high in vitamin C and dietary fiber.
The distinguishing disadvantage is the high amount of calories and carbohydrates.
For example, just one cup of this type of avocado contains 276 calories.
Avocado with black skin
Avocado with black skin or as it is otherwise known as Hass, is the most common type of avocado.
This type is easily distinguished by the black color of the skin, which becomes even darker when overripe.
This variety is quite similar to green avocado, in its content of sodium, dietary fiber and vitamin C, all beneficial to good health.
They also contain the same high amounts of carbohydrates and calories.
Which is better?
It does not really matter which avocado is better, but which one is easier to find.
Because both types have the same health benefits and disadvantages.
