It is a multi-stemmed tropical evergreen tree. Avocado leaves are typically glossy, elliptic to ovate and dark green. Small greenish-yellow flowers bloom in panicles, followed by green-skinned, pear-shaped to rounded fruit. Each fruit has a very large central seed or pit surrounded by an edible fruity pulp. Mature fruits ripen off the tree, with the edible flesh turning yellow with a rich buttery consistency. Avocado is one of the very few fruits that is packed with ‘good’ mono-unsaturated fat. It is also very rich in fibres, vitamins and minerals.
