What is Avocado

Avocado (scientific name:Persea americana) is a tropical evergreen tall tree in the family Lauraceae, native to the tropics of Central America. The tree grows to a height of about 25 meters. Its green leaves are large, egg-shaped and alternate with each other. The inflorescence is cone-shaped and has many small yellowish-green flowers. There are six flower crusts of flowers. The dark green berries hanging from the branches are edible raw. The rind is dark green at first, but when it ripens it turns black and is good for eating. The outer skin of the fruit is thin and can be peeled by hand.
Then there is a large, hard, globular seed in the center, which is removed with a knife and the remaining pale yellow flesh is eaten raw. It has a sticky texture similar to tuna toro, so it goes well with soy sauce and is used to make California rolls for sushi. The English name comes from the alligator pear, which grows in the habitat of a crocodile. If eaten by birds, small animals or domestic animals, food poisoning may occur.
