A Tall Avocado Tree in San Francisco



Ammar Swalim, the store owner from a Pacific Hardware Store, did not notice an avocado tree in the backyard until he heard the loud thump. The avocado tree is 50 feet tall, and it has many branches and fruits. In general, the avocado will grow in a warm and humid climate, not San Francisco's weather. It will take 15 years for an avocado tree to grow from a seed to one with fruits. Moreover, it might become the giant avocado tree in the US.


Swalim had tried to eat them on his own, but there were still a lot of fruits. He decided to give these free avocados to Nextdoor.com. Surprisingly, he got a lot of comments and views through the website. There were a lot of people asking for more through the website. There were a few people who tried to come and see the tree. Swalim thought that might be a business opportunity, and he might be able to sell some of those avocados through his store.


Avocado is one of the most incredible fruit with value calories. Here are two ways you can eat with avocados:


1. Avocado Toast

1) Mash the avocado with a fork in a shallow bowl until chunky—season with acceptable salt and black pepper.

2) Toast the bread until browned and crisp. Lightly rub one side of each slice with the cut side of the garlic until fragrant; discard the garlic. Lightly brush the toasts with oil, and season with acceptable salt and pepper. If used, divide the mashed avocado evenly among the toasts and top with more flaky sea salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.


2. Avocado Salad

1) Make the avocado salad dressing: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together lemon juice, red wine vinegar, extra virgin oil, honey, garlic, cilantro, parsley, oregano, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

2) Toss veggies (and technically fruits) with dressing: In a large bowl, gently toss together cucumbers, tomatoes, red onion, avocado with dressing



Hopefully, people can try to plant an avocado tree in their backyard, so you can serve yourself from your backyard without spending money on stores.
