There are more than 80 varieties of avocados. The most common is the year-round Hass avocado, whose original mother tree still stands in California today. The two main U.S. producers of the avocado are California & Florida. The Golden State far outranks the Sunshine State, however, with more than 6,000 groves accounting for about 90% of avocado crops. Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, folate, and B6. Half an avocado has 160 calories, 15 grams of heart-healthy unsaturated fat, and only 2 grams saturated fat. One globe contains more than one-third daily value of vitamin C, and more than half the day’s requirements of vitamin K. Guacamole is a very popular dish made from avocados. On Super Bowl Sunday, Americans eat about 8 million pounds of guacamole…and for Cinco de Mayo, the tally is closer to 14 million. That’s a lot of avocado!
