Avocado is known for its quintessentially tumbled leathery fairly thick skin that turns near black when fully mature. It ripens evenly, it peels easily, its pit is easy to remove and it has a rich, nutty flavour with a creamy texture. The Imported Avocado is often recognized as the archetypal avocado, green in color, pear-like in shape, and ranging from six to twelve ounces in size. It has smooth, medium-thin skin that peels easily, with dense, pale green flesh. It is marginally oily with a rich, creamy flavor and notes of hazelnut, and it is still considered by many to be the best tasting avocado. 1 Piece weighs around 250 to 350 Grams
Avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, and folic acid. They are rich in dietary fiber, and are known for being a good source of monounsaturated fat, second only to olives among fruits in oil content. Avocados can be mashed, cubed, sliced, pureed, or halved and stuffed. Add avocado slices to sandwiches or salads, or mash with lime juice, onion, tomato, cilantro, salt, and other spices to make guacamole.
