Have you tried an Alligator Pear?

National Avocado Day is Sunday, July 31, 2022. Avocado, also known as an Alligator Pear, originated in southern Mexico. The ancient Aztecs used the fruit for skin masks and currently the cosmetic industry uses them in creams, lotions and facial cleaners as they are rich in fiber, folic acid, vitamin B6, iron, copper and magnesium. Avocados also have heart healthy Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins C, E and K. They are also known to supply 60% more potassium than bananas.

More people are eating avocados than ever before!

The US consumption of avocados have tripled in the last 20 years! They are easily used in recipes for every meal, from breakfast with avocado on toast, to lunch with salads, sushi and salsas, on burgers, in burritos, and desserts such as brownies.
