So what is the "dip holder" of choice for guacamole dip? Chips, veggies, wings ?
Tortilla-chips, Tacos (made with fresh corn tortillas), Burritos (preferably filled with carne asada and guacamole, and my finger tips as I'm snitchin' from the bowl when nobody's watching, or a spoon, to test-taste of course.

Another reason to buy Tostitos

Thanks, Kay. Really colorful. I like it a lot.

It's looking like guac is better with a crunchy chip rather than a celery or carrot accompaniment.
I just may make some this weekend.

I agree - salty, crunchy chips with creamy, slightly chunky guac is best, although I also like it in fajitas. I like to put salsa, guac *and* cheese on fajitas

And yes, it's a gorgeous bowl. I love Mexican art.

Friends in Mexico have their sinks made like this. Beautiful.

Salty crunchy. Gotcha!
If it turns out I don't like guacamole dip, at least I'll have one picture of it in the bowl, lol.

I've never had a Florida avocado living in the middle of "Hassland". On second thought, maybe I have. You mean those thin skin long kind? I don't think they have the flavor of Hass.
I have been told the same thing regarding grafting. I guess it would be like trying to grow an orange tree from and orange seed. Not likely going to be successful.

The Florida avocado is the exact same shape, just twice as big and more green in color. They do also get dark in color as they ripen. They are a bit longer like you say though. They are a bit slender at the short end. You very well may have had one before. Sounds like you have.

I am not sure how long it takes for a Hass tree to mature, but I can guarantee a Florida avocado would take many years before it would be able to produce and hold edible fruit.
Florida avocado trees can be 30-40 foot tall and as wide as a house.

Are the Hass trees like this? You did say bush?

Like GG, I like my guac with some texture, not mashed too much. Make sure your avocado's aren't past their prime and overly ripe, as it can be a matter of only a day.
I like mine with garlic powder, lemon juice, seasoned salt and Sriracha hot sauce.
