Avocados are thought to have originated in Mexico and grow well in tropical and Mediterranean climates. The fruit is pear shaped or somewhat round, depending on variety. Fruit has thin rinds that vary from smooth to very pebbly. Ripe fruit colors can be deep green to almost black. Flesh is yellow-green and very creamy.
