Sunday Savvy 37


Sunday savvy -
the soft buttery flavour
of avocado slices

--gillena cox

...the West Indian type bears the largest fruit with some avocados weighing over two pounds. The skin is smooth and usually light green. The leaves have no scent...In addition to being a popular plantation tree in Central and South America, it is grown extensively in California. The Quetzal bird was an important element of early Central American mythology, and Aztec royalty wore headdresses including plumes removed from live-trapped males (which could then be released to grow new feathers with their next molt). Guatemalans so revere the Quetzal that they chose it as the national bird, and even named their monetary unit the "quetzal". The Quetzals rely heavily on the fruit of wild avocados for food. The fruits are swallowed whole, and the large seeds, still viable, are often regurgitated at some distance from the source tree. Because Quetzals are among the only frugivorous (fruit-eating) birds able to eat these large fruits, it is thought that the wild avocados are reliant on them to disperse their seeds...

Its a rainy Sunday morning; What does Sunday have to do with avocado; absolutely nothing, except that i had some at breakfast this morning
