Avocados are one of those unique vegetables that have an umami taste profile. This is usually the taste of glutamate, which is an amino acid found in foods like meats, dairy, fish, and vegetables.
You can tell if an avocado is ripe with the mix of color and feel. Often a ripe avocado will have a deep, dark coloring when ready to eat. Ripe avocados will give way to firm, gentle pressure when squeezed by the palm of a hand without fingers.

If unripe, leave on counter or place in paper bag at room temperature. Once ripe, store in fridge for up to a week.
Avocados provide thiamin, riboflavin, and vitamin A, and in some varieties, the flesh contains as much as 25 percent unsaturated oil. With all their good fats, they help with heart health and Type 2 Diabetes.

Avocados are long thought to have originated in South Central Mexico and are classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae. Surprisingly, they're also known as an alligator pear! Pear? Yes! Avocados are considered a fruit! Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating and are often propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.
