  7. And only became popular in my country like two years ago, before I had no idea where I can buy them.
    By the way I never tried tasty avocado, but believe they exist.

  9. I love them, but it took my almost 30 years to acquire a taste for them. Now, I can't get enough.

  10. Avocados grow on trees - to the best of my knowledge, trees have been on planet earth since the beginning of time - so why the bloody surprises??

    Nothing nicer with a salad than avocados.
