How to Draw an Avocado Tree Step 1

Begin with a black marker and draw two parallel lines in the center of your page, emerging up from the bottom. Around halfway up, bring the right-hand line across to spiral downwards to the right, on the left-hand line across to the left to spiral upwards – this is the trunk, and the bottom branches of your tree.

Add two small, slightly curved lines to the top of the curve on the right-hand side. Then, add another curved line just above this, ending in two curved “forks”.

Until each of them is full!

Now you have created your very own avocado tree – the bearer of the mighty avocado fruit! Why not work to create your own orchard, or combine the tree with the fruits of its labor – the avocado itself?

When it comes to superfoods, avocados are up there with the best of the best, and there is good reason for their status as a health must-have. They contain more potassium than bananas – often cited as the best source – as well as plenty of antioxidants, fat (more than any other fruit or vegetable) and a ton of fiber. This combination allows the avocado to form the staple of a number of dishes and delicious recipes, including the famous guacamole.

These days, 95% of all commercially grown avocados in the United States come from trees which are a direct descendant of a single tree, originally owned by a mail carrier from California – this means that most of the avocados you enjoy will be distantly related in some way!

While avocados are recommended to help humans stay healthy and well, the same cannot be said for other species – these fruits are extremely poisonous to cats, dogs, birds and rabbits. Keep your treat away from your precious pets – they are for you alone to enjoy!
