It may be a Bacon or Fuerte variety, which are smooth skinned.
Avocados that come from California have pebbly skin. Florida growers use a different cultivar that has smooth skin. In total, there are 15 cultivars. Here is a detailed rundown on Florida varieties: https://www.ams.usda.gov/sites/default/files/media/FloridaAvocadoVarieties.pdf. If you are curious, there is a California Avocado Commission that has an online rundown of California varieties.
