I was keen on tasting avocado and my friend got me two when she visited me I eagerly started following recipes but I did not like the taste. I wonder why so many rave about avocado. I have two plants of the avocado that I got from the avocado seeds my friend brought me. Do you like avocado. How do you eat it?

No, I don't like the taste. But it's healthy and I have developed some taste for the spread that my friend told me. It's okay with bread but still not a big fan.

@allknowing I don't buy them. My friend has one tree and she is not sure what to do with the produce. Many don't want to buy it. So we get a few as free offer along with other organic stuffs that we order from her.

Yes, I like avocado for its smooth and buttery texture. I usually simply cut it in half, sake out the stone and fill the hollow in each half with a simple vinaigrette (olive oil, vinegar and a little salt and pepper shaken together) and eat it with a spoon. It's usually served here as a starter or an hors d'oevre but I have been known to eat it for breakfast. Some people like to slice or mash the flesh and eat it spread on toast. It is also used to make guacamole, which is a sauce or a dip used to accompany Mexican foods.

I think one has to acquire a taste for it no matter what it is stuffed with Now I have two plants growing

@allknowing You can always give away the fruit when it arrives. I believe you may have to wait a long time, though. It seems that an avocado tree may take between five and 13 years before it is mature enough to bear fruit and may need careful pruning to keep it to a reasonable size, You also need one tree to bear type A flowers and the other type B and you won't know that until they flower.

@owlwings I may not live that long but those who take over will benefit from it I do not know what type these seeds were whether both A, both B or A and B In the meantime I am trying to see if I can eat an avocado with some combinations suggested in this thread.

Avocado is very scarce and costly here. I have never tasted it so I wouldn't know its taste but people do talk great about this fruit. I thought the fruit is imported.

Avocados are definitely unlike other fruits. Their texture is smooth and creamy - at least when ripe - otherwise it is just hard and almost tasteless. The flavour is also quite odd. I like them just chopped and combined into a mixed salad, or made into guacamole (very simple, just with lime juice and coriander), or spread on toast with a dash of chilli sauce, sometimes topped with a fried egg. You can also cook them, they are tasty roasted with herbs, tomatoes and olive oil.

@allknowing You are lucky being able to grow them, here we can grow them as house plants but of course they will not grow large enough to fruit!

I don't love the taste but I do eat them periodically because they are a good fat. I've eaten them with eggs, and in sandwiches although I wouldn't rave about that so much. The most common way is with a mix and as a dip for tortilla chips. Some eat it like an apple but with a little lime juice and sea salt. I have yet to try it that way.

Avocado is as bland as possible. But where I live, it's a son not to like it. People mostly make guacamole... so far I haven't found any "tasty" recipe involving this fruit. But it being tasteless, I guess it can be added safely anywhere.

It can be added so that it robs the taste of other ingredients and then the world says avocado is tasty

@allknowing It should be a great match to coriander leaves then. One steals the taste of other ingredients, and the other overpowers all the tastes.

@hora_fugit This is like the story of the stone soup. You add all ingredients to that soup and finally throw the stone away
