Hass avocados have a dark purple or black skin and a creamy, bright green flesh inside. This variety of avocado is grown in California, New Zealand and Central America. Hass avocados contain many different nutrients packed inside the small fruit.

Calories and Serving Size

A whole Hass avocado without the pit and skin contains between 250 and 289 calories, depending on size. The Hass Avocado Board lists a serving size as one-fifth of an avocado.

Fat Facts

Hass avocados contain up to 26 grams of total fat per whole fruit, according to Calorie King, which accounts for 41 percent of your daily needs. The fats in avocados are largely monounsaturated, the best type of fat you can consume to lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease, according to the American Heart Association.

Other Nutrients

Hass avocados contain not only healthy fats but a load of other nutrients, including folate, vitamin C, protein and fiber. Eating an entire avocado can give you 40 percent of your daily need for folate, according to the Hass Avocado Board.
