Avocado is one of the most popular fruits in the world of fitness. The reason for its popularity is the nutrients it contains; Vitamin K, Vitamin C, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, Folate, and Potassium. It is full of flavor and creamy texture, which is the reason of this fruit being highly priced. It makes up for the vitamins that lack in today’s diet. Avocado is an oval shaped fruit with yellowish- green flesh and rough bumpy skin.
