Any chance that we get to sneak avocado in our food, be it burgers or burritos, we’ll gladly take. Have you ever wondered what the journey of an avocado embarks on before it arrives in your meal?
On a recent tour with California Avocados, we got to see all the different life stages of the popular green fruit. And yes, it is actually a fruit.
After a recent viewing of the Christopher Nolan movie Memento, where a forgetful Guy Pierce pieces together his past by working backwards with photographs, we wanted to do the same with the fatty green piece of produce. To us, there’s just something satisfying about knowing exactly where your food comes from before inevitably devouring it.
Check out a reverse look at the life of an avocado, from food porn to seedling.
