Avocados grow in spades in this area and lucky me, one sits in my neighbors yard. If you have never grown up with an avocado tree you have no idea how much fruit it produces. In a good year a mature tree may produce 2-3 full brown paper grocery bags (think Trader Joe’s) a week. That’s right, 2-3 of those bags a WEEK. You and all of your neighbors have so many avocados that you can’t find anyone around happy to take them off your hands. One could sell them to markets or even restaurants but honestly, everybody has avocados.
Just as upstate New Yorkers have apples, Californians are blessed with the lovely avocado.
