Hold the Guacamole

We might not have California Avocados to mash.
Avocados from Mexico, Chile and even Florida will satisfy consumers' guacamole cravings this winter, but there could be shortages when the California crop is ready for harvest.

A combination of environmental and economic woes hit California growers in 2008, setting the stage for the smallest avocado crop in years. The California Avocado Commission reported that only 95,254 tons would be harvested from March to August, making this the smallest crop since the 1990 when the crop was affected by a severe freeze. -
