Avocados have a high oil content, are rich in vitamins C and E and are also good sources of fibre. They are fantastic for maintaining a healthy appetite and are full of antioxidants, making this the reason they are often considered a ‘super food’.
The avocado is native to Central and South America and first arrived in Australia in 1840 with seeds planted in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney. Avocado trees can be grown across Australia apart from areas that experience heavy frosts and there are two common types of avocado now available from Riverland producers in the Adelaide Showground Farmers’ Market. The Hass avocado, which accounts for about 80% of avocados grown in Australia, and the Fuerte avocados with a thinner skin and pronounced pear shape. The Hass avocado changes colour as it ripens, going from a purplish black to an olive green, while the Fuerte has a glossy green skin and is particularly easy to peel with relatively loose skin. The best way to select an avocado is to gently press the top to test for ripeness. If it is quite firm, it will be ready in a few days and can be ripened at home at room temperature. For a range of recipes using avocados visit the Australian Avocado website http://www.avocado.org.au/ - a website funded by the Australian Avocado industry levy.
Supply of South Australian grown avocados is limited at the moment, with more produce becoming available as it ripens over the next couple of months.
