Nutrient rich fruit

Originally from Central America, the fruit of the Avocado tree was considered sacred by the Aztecs. Present in Europe since the 16th century, it was nicknamed the American Pear. Exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and proteins, it is an almost perfectly balanced food. Over the years, it has also been used as a remedy for migraines, respiratory disorders and skin diseases.
