Did you know….

An avocado has more potassium than a banana? It’s true! Avocados have a whopping 975 milligrams of potassium, whereas a banana typically has 544 milligrams.
There are different varieties of avocados? Avocados’ taste and texture depend on the region they’re from. Florida-grown avocados are lower in fat and firmer, while Hass avocados, from Mexico, are perfect for mashing and whipping.
There’s a secret trick to ripening them quickly? Need to ripen that avocado ASAP? Place it in a brown paper bag with a banana or two. The bananas will release ethylene gas, a natural plant hormone that aids in ripening fruit.
