The humble avocado has exploded in popularity in recent years, going from a relatively unknown ingredient in guacamole, to a staple in the diet of fans from celebrities and Instagram stars, to a “must-have” on toast with health fans across the world.

Seemingly overnight, avocado recipes began popping up out of nowhere, with a huge variety of uses, experiments and tasty treats which made the most of this curious – and previously relatively unknown – fruit. These days, the avocado is a common sight in kitchens across the globe, as well as a familiar staple on menus in health food cafes, hipster restaurants, and any site selling a dream of health and wellness.

Despite its huge modern popularity, the avocado was not always referred to as such – in fact, it was originally known as an “alligator pear”, following the discovery of the avocado tree by Irishman Sir Hans Sloane in 1696. Upon his discovery, he christened the tree an “alligator pear tree”, and the fruit to bore an “alligator pear”.

It took several years for the more familiar term “avocado” to become commonplace, and in the meantime, the many incredible features of the fruit began to be uncovered, including high levels of potassium, fiber and antioxidants – did you know that the humble avocado actually contains more potassium than bananas, one of the most famous sources?

Be aware however: while the avocado has a number of health benefits for humans, the same cannot be said for all species – the skin of an avocado can be toxic to both cats and dogs, so leave your fruit out of the way of your furry friends.
