Pretty much every avocado you see in stores and that gets served in restaurants is smuggled in from Mexico and technically illegal contraband.
Gasp!!!! Why? Well, because Belize does not allow the importation of avocados. But why? (you again ask) Well, to protect the local economy of course!!! I mean avocados are grown here after all!!!
Well... actually they're just grown here about 4 months of the year... and the variety grown here has much less of an oil/fat content than say the Hass variety so if you use them to make say, guacamole, the result is a pretty tasteless yellowish watery mess... But gosh darn it, "eat local." What does it matter if on a clear day I can crane my neck and practically SEE plentiful delicious avocados.
So to procure decent avocados in Belize what you end with are clandestine conversations such as this:
"Hey __________, how's it going... Look... I need 10 kilos of stuff... Right away, I don't care what the price is, I have customers lined up asking for it. I know the border has been tight as of late and they're lot's of checkpoints, but call your guy and make it happen ok?"
Perhaps those bringing avocados into Belize should pack/disguise them as drugs, thus allowing freer movement about the country???
That said, we might(?) have some here... Come to the back door and knock three times...
And if anyone is looking for some mangos, decent carrots, or some pretty killer romaine, I might know a guy who knows a guy....
