About Hass avocados

The Hass avocado is one of several hundred varieties of avocado, but it just so happens to be the predominant variety found in refrigerators across the United States, and there's a rich story behind its creation. In 1926, a California postal delivery person, and amateur horticulturist, named Rudolph Hass brought home some avocado seedlings. One of them proved to be so difficult to raise in that environment that Hass considered cutting it down. Due to his persistence to keep it alive, that seedling grew to bear a unique and tasty variety of avocado that now makes up 80 percent of the avocado crop in the United States. 

Hass avocados are a medium-sized fruit encased in dark green bumpy skin. They are considered a superfood because they are packed with vitamins and minerals that produce a long list of health benefits, including aiding digestion, the immune system, and regulating blood pressure.

The fruit is probably best known as the primary ingredient in guacamole, a dip or spread that blends lime juice, sea salt, and other ingredients and is frequently associated with Mexican cuisine. Many people dip tortilla chips into a dish of guacamole or add it to quesadillas, tacos, or even use it as a healthy addition to sandwiches.

Nutritionally, a single serving, or 100 grams, of an avocado provides about 160 calories. It is extremely high in vitamins B and K and moderately high in vitamin C, vitamin E, and potassium. Avocados are also a good source of fiber in your diet. The fruit even contains beta carotene. Some studies suggest that avocados can be beneficial in supporting the nutritional needs of older adults.
