How do I eat it? Cut the avocado lengthwise around the seed. Gently twist the halves to separate them. Use a spoon to take off the seed by sliding it under. Next step is my favorite, just dig in with a spoon or peel it and use it in your recipe.
Why should I eat it? Avocado could benefit anyone's diet. Even if it's the fruit with the highest fat content, it's important to know that it's really low in saturated fat (clogging-arteries fat). Rather, avocados are full of monounsaturated fat (heart-healthy fat). Furthermore, the Alligator Pear is loaded with various health-contributing nutrients such as fibers, folic acid, B6 vitamin, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, as well as vitamin E. Enjoy!
