This to facilitate the practices of phytosanitary control (the prevention and cure of the diseases of plants or related to it), harvest, pruning and foliar fertilization. The avocado tree has a thick trunk with elongated leaves that end in a tip on the upper part of the trunk. It has several ramifications, which generate a dense foliage with intense green leaves and shares a certain characteristic with the laurel because it is also a perennial tree, which is why it is cultivated all year round.
Few of the many reasons why you should include avocado to your diet is for its high content of omega 3, reducing cholesterol and stress levels, controlling of blood pressure, preventing malformations during pregnancy, protection against cancer, cleansing the intestines and its fantastic properties for the skin.

Avocado also contains several groups of vitamins including A, C and D, which the body doesn’t store very well. By eating an avocado on a daily basis your body maintains the right level of these vitamins. It also contains fiber that prevents constipation and regulates blood sugar.
