Don’t know if you heard, but National Avocado Day is finally here! This special day started back in 2015, as California was experiencing the peak of its avocado season. According the Hass Avocado Board, the consumption of avocados has quadrupled since the year 2000. In 2015, approximately 4.25 billion avos were consumed nationwide (that’s avo-crazy)!
