They are not the greatest looking avocado and a little small but still they have been delicious. I like avocado. So much so I am sceming room to figure out how to grow some around here. It would involve bringing them inside for the winter. That is what the away room is for,  right?

There are many possible health benefits  associated with eating avocado.  Avocados contain natural plant sterol called beta-sitosterol. This plant sterol can help control cholesterol.  Avocados contain of high levels of folate. This can help with moods or reduction of depression. The avocado is a creamy but is actually high in fiber. Fiber has any health benefits including preventing constipation. 

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene and omega-3 fatty acids.

I like them sliced on salad and sliced with a little salt. They are also great in  guacamole.

Ah, I am missing the avocados growing I remembered so well in my youth.
