#thursdaythrive  all about Avocados!

  • Avocado is basically a berry – a large one with a single seed inside it. Sometimes avocado is also known as alligator pear.
  • Avocados are available as both domesticated and undomesticated. Domesticated ones have a green skin, a fleshy body and a quite big seed. The undomesticated variant has a black skin, somewhat fleshy body but the seed is very large.
  • Scientists have unearthed evidences from a cave in Mexico’s Coxcatlan in Mexico, which reveal that avocados were used as far back as in 10,000 BCE.
  • This fruit is also known to have high fiber content. It contains both soluble as well as insoluble fiber, both of which are needed by our body for proper digestion and keep us free from gastrointestinal diseases.
