Avocado has the highest protein content of any
fruit. This unique fruit with its buttery, vitamin-rich flesh has
been cultivated for at least 3000 years.
The fruits come from the tree Persea americana, native to the rainforests
of Central America.
They are usually eaten fresh as cooking causes browning and bitterness.

The first European to describe eating an avocado was Fernandez de Oviedo from
Spain, and in 1672 it was also described by the Englishman W. Hughes as “one
of the most rare and pleasant fruits…it
nourisheth and strengtheneth the body.”
