We’re pretty sure most Americans will find any excuse to add avocado to their meal. Be it an avocado toast with a fried egg for breakfast, or a hamburger topped with guacamole. Let’s not leave out all the Happy Hours enjoyed at our neighborhood Mexican cantina alongside chips and guac. But did you know that to make just one little sliver of avocado it requires 4.1 gallons of water?
Not that our avocado trees are producing anything other than a full fruit (yes, it is considered a fruit) However, it is good to have in mind how much water goes into the crop before tossing that extra sliver into the trash.
