The article gives a comprehensive guide on avocado weights and calories and presents detailed charts and conversions for various serving sizes and portions. It reveals that an average-sized whole avocado weighs about 150g, while its edible flesh is around 100g, and provides a breakdown of calorie content for different weights and serving sizes.
Weight of an Average-Sized Avocado
I did the research and weighed various sized avocados to find an average weight and found the following:
The average weight of one whole average-sized avocado is 150g. This weight includes the skin and the seed.
|Conversion||Weight of a whole |
Weight of a Large Avocado
The average weight of a whole large avocado is 200g, this includes the skin and the seed.
The conversion chart shows this weight in both metric and imperial values.

How Much Does an Avocado Weigh Without the Seed and Skin?
If you need to know avocado weights to calculate calories or for a recipe then you’ll need to know how much the edible part of the fruit weighs without the skin and the seed (or pit).
I stripped out the flesh from average-sized and large avocados to get an average weight of the flesh inside.
The average weight of the edible flesh part of an average-sized avocado (without the skin and seed) is around 100g (3.5oz) and the average weight of the flesh from a large avocado is around 125g (4.4oz).
The table below shows the conversion amounts for the flesh weight of an avocado:

How to Calculate the Weight of Avocado Flesh
To easily calculate how much flesh is inside an avocado without weighing the messy part is to know how much on average the skin and seed weigh.
I weighed the skin and seeds to get an average figure to deduct from the weight of a whole avocado and got the following average weights:
The average weight of the skin from an average-sized avocado is 25g and the average weight of the seed is 25g. The average weight of the skin from a large avocado is 35g and the average weight of a large seed is 40g.
Use the table below to work out the amount which needs to be deducted from a whole avocado weight to get the edible flesh weight:
|Avocado size||Average-sized avocado||Large avocado|
|Average seed (pit weight)||25g||40g|
|Average skin weight||25g||35g|
|Total amount to deduct|
from whole fruit weight
How Much Does a Cup of Avocado Weigh?
I did the research using average-sized avocados with the skins and seeds removed.
A US (236ml) cup contains just over two average-sized lightly mashed avocados which is equal to around 230g/8.1oz in weight.
The image shows what the flesh of two average-sized avocados looks like in a cup.

How Much Avocado is in a Portion?
The recommended portion size of an avocado is 50g (1.76oz), which is equal to around half of the flesh of a whole 150g (5.3oz) avocado. This portion size contains 83.5 calories in total.

The conversion table below shows more avocado portions to help you quickly work out the weight and calories for your portion.
This chart is based on the assumption that an average-sized avocado weighs 150g (100g without the skin and seed) and a large avocado weighs 200g (125g (without the skin and seed).
I have also used calorie values provided by the USDA.
