Avocado Lovers Rejoice! - We located a backyard gardener who wanted to share the bounty of their avocado harvest. The skin of this variety darkens to a reddish hue when ripening. Most of these will need a few days on your countertop before ripe (better yet, put them in a closed paper bag on your countertop to speed up the process by a day or two.)

Avocado Nutrition

Avocados have a lot of calories. The recommended serving size is smaller than you’d expect: 1/3 of a medium avocado (50 grams or 1.7 ounces). One ounce has 50 calories. 

Avocados are high in fat. But it's monounsaturated fat, which is a "good" fat that helps lower bad cholesterol, as long as you eat them in moderation.

Avocados are low in sugar. And they contain fiber, which helps you feel full longer. In one study, people who added a fresh avocado half to their lunch were less interested in eating during the next 3 hours than those who didn’t have the fruit.
