Bernecker

'BACON' is a Mexican type avocado like Haas. The fruit is slightly larger however with a dark green almost black skin. The fruit eats very well having a rich creamy flavor and a skin that peels quite easily. It is a minor commercial variety in California, and it does have some history here in Florida as well. Having exceptional cold resistance it would be a good selection for connoisseurs in USDA hardiness zones 9 and 10.
