Avocados have become the United States’ favorite fruit with consumption growing over the last 15 years. It’s led to the opening of a new all-avocado restaurant called Avocaderia in Brooklyn, New York. All of their options, from breakfast to smoothies, have an abundance of the trendy fruit.
Even with a shortage of avocados in 2017 and prices rising by 125 percent, people were still in demand for the fruit. California saw a 44 percent decrease in their harvest due to inclement weather, which means that more of them were imported from Mexico. According to the Agriculture Marketing Resource Center, Americans eat over seven pounds of avocados per year.
