The avocado is an excellent source of potassium and folic acid and a good source of vitamin B6. It also contains magnesium, pantothenic acid, vitamin C, copper, niacin, iron, vitamin A and zinc.
The avocado is very nutritious and energising food. Its fat content is easy to digest because it contains numerous enzymes that facilitate the breakdown of fats. The avocado is said to be a good for the stomach and the intestines. Avocados can be left to ripen at room temperature. Storing them in the fridge will slow down the process.
Avocado belongs to a group of vegetables and fruits that emit ethylene, an odourless, harmless and tasteless gas, that can rapidly accelerate the process of ripening of other fruits and vegetables that are sensitive to the gas such as greens, cucumbers, cruceferous vegetables and potatoes. It is best to keep avocados away from these vegetables.
Serene Nature House recommends that you set the two drawers in the fridge at a high humidity setting which means that you set the drawers to close off completely from bringing in air. You use these drawers for your greens, cruciferous vegetables, cucumbers, berries, eggplants and herbs. For your other fruits, avocados, mushrooms and bananas you can use the middle or top shelf. This will keep these fruits and vegetables segragated and elongate the life of your produce!
