Brooks Tropicals markets its avocados through an innovative concept. While the most common avocado consumed in the U.S. is the Hass avocado, Brooks Tropicals grows and packs a range of avocado varieties called SlimCados, which share one common characteristic: they have up to half the fat and a third fewer calories than the leading California avocado. Generally pear-shaped with smooth or bumpy green skin, the SlimCado varies in shape and in size from three to thirteen inches long and up to five inches wide.
