We'll load up our caravan and hike out to the best spot to plant one of the most nurturing and nutritious trees on the island! With over 200 vastly different avocado varieties in Hawaii, there are many shapes and sizes to choose from. No matter the variety,one thing is certain; the range of nutrition avocados have to offer borders on miraculous!
Avocados have more potassium than bananas, are loaded with fiber, can lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels, have tons of antioxidants, and help the body absorb other nutrients better. They are an extremely hardy food that is loaded with the most healthy fats imaginable, making it an important staple food on the island, especially in times of food scarcity. The majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid, which is believed to be responsible for reducing inflammation and treating certain types of cancer.
Mahalo for considering planting our community an ever-giving avocado tree!
