Hello Stephanie;

We sure wish that we could grow nutty, creamy avocadoes out here in the arid
southwest!  Unfortunately, we can't and really don't have much experience
with them.  I would consider contacting your local cooperative extension.  I
don't know if the Orleans Parish office has a Master Gardener program, but
you can contact them at Address:
6400 St. Claude Avenue, Building 104-C
New Orleans , LA 70146

Phone:
(504)278-7495
Fax: (504)278-7496

The University of California has a whole area devoted to avocadoes and
maintains a site to help identify the varieties grown there.  Their website
can be located at
http://www.ucavo.ucr.edu/AvocadoWebSite%20folder/AvocadoWebSite/AvocadoVarie
ties/VarietyFrame.html

The University of Florida Cooperative Extension also does some work with
those fatty green fruits.  Their site isn't as pretty as the Cali site but
may discuss varieties that you are probably likely to see in Louisiana
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/MG213

Good luck!


Kelly
