While these have become know as “long neck” avocados, Slate points out that these are actually Pura Vida Avocados, from a tree renowned for bearing gourd-like avocados. According to Edelle Schlegel, the co-founder of Miami Fruit, their shape is far from the only thing that makes them unique. These avocados also have a slightly different taste than the smaller ones we are all used to buying at the grocery store.
“Our long neck avocados are thick, creamy, savory and slightly sweet,” Schlegel told “Today.”

If you’re dying to try these avocados, there’s a bit of good news and bad news. The good news is that you can order boxes of these long neck avocado and Miami fruit will ship them to you. But, the bad news is that the season for these avocados has sadly come to an end, so you’ll have to wait until next year.
Maimi Fruit told “Today” that folks could pre-order next season’s avocados on their website. Prices start around $47 for a small box, which contains between three to six pounds of avocados. Pricing and weight options can increase all the way to a bulk option that costs around $197 for 35 to 45 pounds.
