Did You Know…
The Aztecs used avocados as a sexual stimulant.
European Sailors making the passage to the Americas knew avocados as MIDSHIPMAN’S BUTTER because they liked to spice up their shipboard provisions with a rich, guacamole-like substance.
Early Americans once called the avocado an ALLIGATOR PEAR because they could not pronounce the Spanish word for avocado, “aguacate,” which is a derivative of the Aztec word, “ahuacatl.”
Americans’ use of the word avocado is a corruption of the Spanish word “aguacate.” The form AVOCADO was first used by Sir Henry Sloane in 1669.
