Tropical tree fruit
Avocado is one of the popular tree fruit which is high in unsaturated fat and it is known as good fat. It can work as a substitute for butter. The trees of avocado is usually found in tropical and Mediterranean climate and exported throughout the Globe.
Throughout the world, avocado is famous for fresh guacamole. Recently it has got huge popularity to use in various types of food and there are several restaurants around the world which are only serving enormous variety of food which is only made of avocados. Isn’t cool?
I have also been a huge fan of avocado and like to use in my food a lot. My kids like to munch on it as a snack which I think it’s a healthy habit to develop.
