Avocados are fruits that originate from south-central Mexico. Avocados are spherical fruits with a big central seed (like in a mango). They are green-skinned and ripen after harvesting. The flesh of the avocado is creamy and rich in vitamins.
The 31st of July is celebrated as National Avocado Day. Avocado is well known for being the main ingredient of Guacamole, the dip or spread that accompanies many Mexican-styled or origin food like tacos and nachos. But beyond just being an ingredient of the guacamole, the avocado also has a lot of other important applications and, more importantly, the grand history behind it. This article is specially created to let you know all that you need to know about National Avocado Day.
Why do we celebrate National Avocado Day? The purpose of National Avocado Day is not to remember the fruit. One celebrates National Avocado Day to understand the rich history behind the fruit, avocados applications, and its health benefits. So National Avocado Day is a day to be remembered. It is a chance to try something unique and spend quality time with friends and family. Watching or chatting or playing with friends or family while munching on avocado-based snacks and finally sharing an avocado-based dinner with your loved ones. It has much greater value than just being a fruit, especially if it is able to give you a reason to celebrate and have fun with your loved ones. So this 31st of July, don’t forget to celebrate National Avocado Day!
Like the banana, the avocado is a climacteric fruit, which matures on the tree, but ripens off the tree. Avocados used in commerce are picked hard and green and kept in coolers at 3.3 to 5.6 °C (37.9 to 42.1 °F) until they reach their final destination. Avocados must be mature to ripen properly. Avocados that fall off the tree ripen on the ground. Generally, the fruit is picked once it reaches maturity; Mexican growers pick 'Hass' avocados when they have more than 23% dry matter, and other producing countries have similar standards. Once picked, avocados ripen in one to two weeks (depending on the cultivar) at room temperature (faster if stored with other fruits such as apples or bananas, because of the influence of ethylene gas).
