Avocados are a stone fruit with a creamy texture that grow in warm climates. Avocado is an oval-shaped fruit with thick green and a bumpy, leathery outer skin. They have a unique texture, with a creamy and light green colored flesh that has a buttery flavour and a special aroma. Their potential health benefits include improving digestion, decreasing risk of depression, and protection against cancer.
Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
