Avocados - The once forbidden, "love" fruit...

Did you know that at one time - the avocado was considered an aphrodisiac?! Yes -- just being caught seen eating one could have gotten you put on the "naughty list"!  In some European countries, women were forbidden to eat them. 

Since the avocados came from warm, tropical climates (featuring ladies with little clothes on from foreign lands) -- and in the "olden days" - an avocado would have been SO rare, so exotic.

Plus they DO kind of resemble a certain pair of male items ---  just say'n.

Undoubtedly the "poor man's butter" (as avocados were called on ships) gave the sailor or traveler a real boost of energy - from its 20 minerals, plenty of protein - it probably DID help with a person's "health" - shall we say?!

Enjoy this silly "sexy avocado" video (rated G - pretty much...)
I'm an Avocado Song and Video  if you wish. Note its about avos from Mexico -- but -- on this international day of romance, I think we Californian's can still embrace this love song from an avocado.

What could YOU do to "spice up your love life" with a delicious avocado? ;-) Here's wishing you a Happy and Healthy Valentine's Day from the Avocado Diva.
