+1. I'll bet some of that habanero hot sauce in your gift pack would make for nice guac, Pac. Maybe make up 3 small batches so you can try each one. I use lime juice in my guac. And it's also nice just cutting an avocado in half and sprinkling with a bit of hot sauce, maybe a squirt of lime juice, and eat with a spoon right out of the shell.

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?

I'll be honest - I'm lazy when it comes to making guacamole, and I like for it to be consistent each time I make it. So I use this guacamole mix, and add a Roma tomato cut into small dice:

Thanks for the tips.
I'm going to make it like the vid I posted. Since he doesn't have the actual recipe posted because he markets the dip, I'll just wing the amounts from watching the vid. Obviously I need to downsize it anyway. Hopefully I'll like it and use it all up in one day so I don't need to worry about it turning brown.

While the jury's out, apparently you can freeze guac. BIL does that all the time with the big batch of Costco guac. I haven't tried it yet.

I keep some small Post-Its and a pen in a kitchen drawer.

I use a dry erase marker to label plastic saver containers and a permanent Sharpie for plastic bags.
