Abbie Chatfield claims Shepard avocados should be BANNED in radio rant


Abbie Chatfield sparks fiery debate as she claims Shepard avocados should be BANNED for ‘tasting like plastic and never ripening’ – but do you agree?

Abbie Chatfield couldn’t hide her blinding rage as she blasted Shepard avocados on her live Hit Network radio show on Tuesday night.

The media personality, 26, sparked a fiery debate online following the rant on her Hot Nights With Abbie show, where she claimed that Hass avocados were superior and that the Shepard variety should be ‘discontinued’.

‘Shepard avocados – they take forever to ripen, and when they do ripen they’re still hard,’ she said. ‘They taste like plastic, they’re yellow in colour – they’re not green!’

Through anger, she continued: ‘The stupid pip is very hard to get out. The other night, I was having a salmon avocado bowl and I had to stoop to the level of the Shepard avocado.

‘I had to peel the avocado because I couldn’t slice it up. I [then] got my hands and I was squishing it with my hands.

‘My boyfriend came in and said, “Abbie, what are you doing?” I said, “Konrad, there’s no other option!’

Abbie's enemy: The Shepard avocado (pictured) accounts for around 10 to 15 per cent of Australia's avocados and is in season from February until April

Her favourite: A Hass avocado is dark-green coloured with bumpy skin, which turns to a dark purplish colour when the fruit is ripe

She concluded by saying she ‘loved avocado farmers’, but would throw her support and money behind a greenhouse that can ‘do a year round Hass’.

‘Discontinue them!’ she said of Shepard avocados.

The Shepard avocado accounts for around 10 to 15 per cent of Australia’s avocados, and is in season from February until April.

Its flesh is slightly firmer than the Hass, meaning it’s harder to tell when it is ripe and isn’t as easy to ‘smash’ on toast.

Support: Many fans were quick to agree with Abbie's rant, with one writing: 'She speaks nothing but the truth!'

A Hass avocado is dark-green coloured with bumpy skin, which turns to a dark purplish colour when the fruit is ripe. 

It is usually easier to spread than a Shepard avocado.

‘Just gotta wait longer for them to ripen, but it’s so worth it!’ another chimed in.

‘I prefer Shepards and they last so much longer too. They’re awesome,’ one fan said, while another added: ‘And they never get those disgusting, stringy veins like Hass. Shepard is the elite.’
