Avocado Information

Information: What you always wanted to know about the avocado (and then some)

The Avocado (Persea americana) (aka Alligator Pear)

The avocado, a member of the laurel family, is a native of some tropical
areas of the Americas which has made its way to many parts of the world.
There are three main groups: Mexican, Guatemalan and West Indian. The
Aztecs called it "ahuacatl", apparently because of its pear-like shape.

There are many interesting things about the avocado, aside from its name.
Unlike many other fruits it doesn't start to ripen until after it has been
picked; contains little or no sugar or starch; contains as much as 30% oil,
which is mostly mono-unsaturated.

Once picked, avocados should be stored at temperatures between 60 to 75F
(15 to 24C) in order to ripen properly; if refrigerated before they are
ripe they will not ripen. Once they are ripe, however, they can be
refrigerated and kept for several days without deteriorating.

The flesh of the avocado will brown rapidly once exposed to the air
therefore the addition of lime juice, lemon juice or even a mild vinegar is
helpful; applying a plastic wrap, such as saran, tightly enough to the
flesh so as to exclude the air will also work in some cases.

Avocados are seldom cooked as they contain a tannin that makes them bitter
if exposed to heat for any length of time but they are sometimes added at
the last minute to thicken and flavour soups and stews.

Some nutritional information - according to my 16th edition of Bowes &
Church's Food Values of Portions Commonly Used (1994):

a) 173 grams of raw avocado contains 306 calories; 125.5g water; 3.6g
protein; 12g carbohydrates; 4.7g dietary fibre; 30g fat; 4.5g saturated
fat; 19.4g monounsaturated fat; 3.5g polyunsaturated fat; 0mg cholesterol;
2.32mg Vitamin E.

b) 1 tablespoon (14 grams) of avocado oil contains 124 calories; 0g water;
0g protein; 0g carbohydrates; 0g dietary fibre; 14g fat; 1.6g saturated
fat; 9.9g monounsaturated fat; 1.9g polyunsaturated fat

I have gleaned this information from several books I have on my shelves but
I know there is a lot more information available on the internet should
anyone wish to delve more deeply into the world of the avocado.

If anyone has any favourite recipes using this delicious fruit please share
them with us.
