Avocado, Persea americana / Lauraceae
Avocados are found in the market all over the year, since the different producing countries offer harvests at different periods of the year. Avocados were sold in the market when they were still hard, that is to say, bitter. At present, they are sold mature, thanks to the application of ethylene. The best moment to consume them is when the pulp is soft and it spreads like butter.

The transport of this fruit from packaging to the supplying centres is usually by air, sea or terrestrial, depending on the distance.
