Avocado

The avocado, a popular green fruit you’re likely familiar with, is also known as the avocado pear. It grows on the avocado tree. The skin of the fruit is relatively hard, dark green (to black) and slightly ribbed. The most distinctive feature of the fruit is found inside; a relatively large, round seed.  

The fruit’s popularity is due to its versatility, creamy flavour and healthy characteristics.

Origin
Originally the avocado originated in Mexico, but today, we import our avocados from places all over the world, including Peru, Chile, South Africa, Israel and Zimbabwe.
Taste
The flesh of the avocado is particularly creamy in texture. This creamy character is one of the fruit’s most striking features and makes it an attractive ingredient in the kitchen. Avocados have a slightly nutty flavour that is delicious when combined with numerous other ingredients.
Use and preparation
Avocadoes have captured the hearts of people globally because they are incredibly versatile in the kitchen. From breakfast to dinner; the avocado is a delicious ingredient in countless dishes and can even stand alone with a pinch of salt and pepper. And did you know that you can also use avocado as a substitute for butter on your bread? Ideal!
Storage advice
Store avocado in a cool place. But take care! Keep the fruit out of the fridge, otherwise it will interfere with the ripening process. Tip: if you want to know whether an avocado is ripe, press it lightly around the stem end. Is it soft? Then the avocado is ready to eat!
Exotic tips!
Leftover avocados can be diced or turned into guacamole, and a little lemon juice prevents discolouration, allowing you to store them in the freezer for up to 8 months! Looking for a substitute for butter? Avocado is the solution! Try it on your bread or in dishes!
Health benefits of avocado
Avocados consist of about 18% fat. Don’t be alarmed, because they consist mostly of monounsaturated fats, especially oleic acid (the good fats). So avocado es are very healthy
