The avocado is indigenous to Mexico and was sacred to the Aztec people. The word is derived from the Nahuatl, and means, well, “testicle”. In the Yoruba tradition of West Africa the avocado is sacred to the trickster god of sex and intoxication. Have you ever been beneath an avocado tree as the heavy ripe fruit falls with a thud? This is a dense and buttery fruit, with a smooth and nut-like seed and earthy green flesh. It fairly exudes sex. Allow yourself to yield to pleasure, to our animal nature. Forget reason, abandon sobriety. Embrace your wild nature.
