I love this fruit soooooo much, I drink it more than I eat it, its juice just awesome!
I'm surprised of people who don't like it!

Try this method:
1 or 2 avocado + 1 or half cup of milk+ a little of water (unless you like it very heavy) pieces of ice+ a little of sugar or honey or sweeter whatever = amazing &fresh


I spent about 2 months until now,since I put avocado seed in a glass of water, it started to open and show the root; it's really interesting but, growing is tooooooo slowly

BTW, don't link any problem to a certain generation, your generation is not perfect; every generation has its own advantages & disadvantages. Maybe avocado's generation is the best since it's linked to be the generation of civilization & evolution with creativity


Anyway, try my method above and tell me your opinion.


Good luck for all

There is a noticeable difference when they are a regular part of my diet versus when not. I think they are incredible. And for the record, I do not care for guacamole, or other avocado spreads. I really just prefer them raw and plain, or maybe with a touch of black pepper. They work great in simple sushi rolls too.
I thought the benefits to the skin were just my imagination. Now youíre reporting it, and Iíve read about it elsewhere. Seems to make a big difference to me.

I for one am extremely grateful for his work.

My wife and I live just down the road a bit, and are annual members of, the fabulous Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden.

Eat all you want, just please stop using apostrophes when talking about your avocados (and almond trees)!

j/k

They didn't. Avocados never ripen on the tree to an edible state, they will just rot. They are always picked hard and need time off the tree to soften and ripe. People who don't believe me, please google this.

You are quite right about many other fruits like tomatoes being picked unripe and never being as tasty as if they were tree- or vine-ripened, but not avocados. By the way, I grew up in (and still live in) SoCal and we had an avocado tree too.

Avocados don't ripen until they are off the tree, which is why they are available for so much of the year.

The ban on shipping avocados from Hawaii had nothing to do with NAFTA, and everything to do with worries about fruit fly infestation.

Yeah I was just going to say that: Avocados don't ripen on trees. Beat me to it.

Taco Hell, as we call it, is to Mexican food, as McDonald's is to fine dining. Tacos shouldn't come in a "kit", please go to a real Mexican restaurant one day. :^)

It's the cash-crop mentality; when something becomes popular, or there's a demand in some part of the world, farmers rush to invest in that crop, resulting in over-investment, and the problems that develop in association with that phenom.

I don't like that Mexican farmers are illegally cutting down forests in order to expand their avocado farms... the same forests that the Monarch butterflies gather in when they migrate south for the winter. I hope that they can adapt to hanging out on avocado trees instead. But a natural forest is not the same environment as rows of shorter avocado trees planted in rows. A forest is taller and denser, probably giving the butterflies a safer place to rest in.
