National Avocado Day
Avocados may have looked like a fad back in 2000, especially when they are sliced and served on toast. They are here to stay, fortunately.
They even have their own day, National Avocado Day, to ensure they get the attention they deserve.
Avocados are a South-central Mexican fruit that dates back thousands of years. However, they were probably not cultivated until 500 BC. The English language didn’t even mention this fruit until 1696.
The avocado was introduced to America in 1871. They grew well in California. They did not become popular in America for 100 years. The reason this happened was because the fruit was exotic and people didn’t know how to make their families eat it.
After the 1980s US “low-fat diet”, the avocado industry was in serious trouble. In the 1990s, they worked hard to educate the American public and create creative marketing campaigns. It was decided to link avocados with Latin dishes, which attracted more attention.
Avocado was once a weirdly shaped, strangely colored and bumpy fruit that people couldn’t cut. It was then normalized and presented in a new way. California’s avocado industry grew rapidly as a result of increased sales and an increase in crop values.
National Avocado Day is observed on the last day in July at the height of California’s avocado season. Avocados are available in supermarkets throughout the year for those who wish to enjoy them at any time of year.
National Avocado Day was established in 2017. It is observed every year and continues to gain popularity.

It is not as hard as you might think! Special contraptions are available in shops that can be purchased for this purpose. You simply need to remove the skin layer from the avocado seed and then poke the seed with toothpicks around a circle. Place the seed on top of a glass or container that has been filled with water using the toothpicks. The bottom should be in water and the rest should be in open air.
It should be kept in a warm area. Water it every day. Within a few weeks, the seedling will begin to grow and can then be planted in soil. Although it may take several years, perhaps five or more, before the tree produces fruit, it is a wonderful project that is well worth the wait.
Avocados are a great choice for skin health, according to some skin experts. Make your own mask instead of purchasing a pre-made, prepackaged, and full of preservatives at the local store.
