Avocados Information:

 

Also known as the Alligator Pear, the avocado is native to the Western Hemisphere, particularly in areas from Mexico to the Andean region where it may have been growing as far back as 7000 B.C. The Peruvians were the first to domesticate avocados around 750 B.C. and make them a regular part of their diets.

Today, avocados are widely available year-round from California, Florida and international sources including Mexico and Chile. Using these sources, Nature's Partner is able to bring you a number of high quality avocado varieties to enjoy in salads, sandwiches, guacamole and other exotic dishes and desserts from cultures worldwide.

Avocados not only taste delicious, they are a very healthy food. They have 60 % more potassium than bananas and are also sodium and cholesterol-free. Although avocados do contain five grams of fat per serving, it is the good-for-you monounsaturated kind of fat.

Avoid avocados with bruises and hard or soft spots. Pulp color and texture should be free of any dark spots or streaks.
