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.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

We have two avocado trees now bearing fruit. Heaven!

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

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.
