Avocados get a lot of love for being delicious, but they've taken a beating in the popularity stakes because of their apparent ties to the Australian housing market. This infographic breaks down everything you need to know about the humble avocado from its origins to its impressive health benefits and its various uses.

The infographic below comes by way of Mercola, which is one of the top health websites in the world. Yes, I'm aware it has had its fair share of criticism too, but these are some legit avocado facts that contain everything you need to know about it's history, its health benefits, its uses and some fun facts, too.

Like, did you know that an alternative name for avocado is 'Crocodile Pear'? I'd be much more interested in stories about Crocodile Pear on Toast making it impossible for millenials to buy a house.
