Description:

The avocado or Persea Americana is an evergreen tree belonging to the laurel family. Its fruit, known for its creamy pulp and culinary versatility, is appreciated worldwide.

Origin and History:

Native to Central America and Mexico, the avocado has been cultivated for centuries. Historical records suggest its consumption dates back to pre-Columbian civilizations, where it was a significant part of their diet.

Care:

Sensitive to cold, frost, ambient humidity, and strong winds, especially in its early years. It requires neutral to slightly alkaline soil. Excessive watering can cause the fruits to fall.

Watering:

Requires regular but not excessive watering. Proper drainage is crucial to prevent issues related to root saturation.

Pruning:

Avocado pruning is done after harvest to shape the tree, eliminating weak or broken branches. It's essential to leave the main branches for optimal growth.

Curiosities:

Avocados have different varieties that differ in skin texture and fruit. Some, like "Hass" or "Pinkerton," have rough skin, while others like "Fuerte," "Bacon," or "Zutano" have smooth skin. Common pests include aphids, red spider mites, and scale insects, and using insecticides when they appear is advisable.

The avocado is a versatile plant with specific care needs that vary according to its stage of development and variety.
