Because of its flavor and versatility, the avocado can be enjoyed on its own or as an ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes. It is one of the few fruits that, in addition to ripening on the tree, undergoes a post-harvest ripening process, a physiological process of 6 to 9 days. To tell if the fruit is ripe, simply press the skin lightly: if it’s soft, it’s ready to eat.
The avocado is a subtropical fruit with multiple qualities: it is energizing and moisturizing, it is rich in healthy fats useful in cell regeneration and lowering cholesterol levels. It contains a wide range of antioxidants and is a source of vitamin E, which slows the aging process and protects against heart disease.
It has a smooth or rough skin – depending on the variety and maturity, from green to purple – a creamy flesh and contains a central core.
It is a tasty and nutritious food, suitable for a healthy and balanced diet, excellent to enjoy alone or as an ingredient in sweet or savory preparations.
