Avocados first grew in the grounds of what more than 9,000 years later is known as Mexico. Avocados, or “Ahuacatl” in “Nahuatl”, the native language of the Aztecs, meaning testicle, were discovered by the Spaniards in Mexico in 1518, where they were a popular fruit in the native diet. Today, avocado is mainly grown in the fertile grounds of Michoacán, where the rich volcanic soil, abundant sun and perfect amounts of rain combine to produce the most special avocado with an authentic and incomparable creamy texture and a full, rich flavor. Avocados are full of antioxidants which, according to medical experts, lower cholesterol and helps prevent certain types of cancer. They also contribute to fulfilling your daily fiber, potassium, vitamin E, folic acid and Vitamin B requirements. Our avocados also contain monounsaturated fats which are recommended to maintain low cholesterol levels.
