Avocados are creamy green fruit loved by all, especially by Southern Californians who incorporate them into many meals. In fact, California grows most of the avocados in the United States, and San Diego grows the most in California. Therefore, San Diego, itself, can be identified as the center of avocados in the United States. Since there is year-long sunny weather, avocados are in season all the time!

Avocados have lots of nutrients and vitamins and are categorized as fats. They are popular in the keto diet, which restricts carbohydrates and heightens fat. Avocados are the center of this diet plan because of their nutritious value and show how good they are to include in a regulated diet.

Avocados are utilized so much in California that they are even celebrated in San Diego. For example, San Diego locals and avocado lovers go to the Annual Fallbrook Avocado Festival to explore different recipes, listen to live music and enjoy time with family and friends. An avocado lovers dream, the Fallbrook Avocado Festival has tons of different avocados for sale, to try, and creative recipes. Some of the recipes include chips and guacamole, avocado toast, avocado smoothies, avocado salad, avocado ice cream, and more.

Traveling from Downtown San Diego, taking the State Route 163 to the I-15 N and exiting Mission Road would take around an hour in light traffic, a small price to pay for a fun day of avocado tasting. 

Avocados are a delicious ingredient with nutritional value, which is why they are used throughout San Diego in different dishes and cuisines, such as Spanish tapas.
