AVOCADO – Hass
Approx 8 per kilo. Avocados are sometimes called alligator pears. Avocados are native to South America and the Mayan had a saying, where avocados flourish, hunger doesn’t – the word Avocado comes from the Nahuatl word for testicles.
Now days they’re a staple of not just Mexican cusine, but salads, breakfasts, burgers and pastas. Most non-western nations like to use avocados in sweet dishes rather than the savory ones we like – in Kenya the avocado is used in fruit salad, in Indonesia in milkshakes and in Brazil they’re mixed with lime juice and sugar to make a popular desert.
