The many nicknames of the avocado

Recommended Posts

for those of you who haven't read "the sunfood diet success system' (david wolfe), this is an excerpt that I enjoyed.




In English, avocados have been known by over forty different names, including:


Alligator Pear,

Butter Fruit, Butter Pear, Custard Apple, Laurel Peach, Midshipman's Butter, Shell Pear, Spanish

Pear, Subaltern's Butter, Testicle Fruit, and Vegetable Marrow.


He claims there are over 40 different nicknames but only mentions 10. Anyone ever hear of any other nicknames for the avocado, i'm curious?
