The avocado is a fruit that grows on trees native to Central and South America. Depending on the region, avocados are also called aguacate, ahuacatl, alligator pear, and avocado pear. Avocados can be as small as an egg or weigh 1 to 2 kilograms (2 to 4 pounds), depending on the variety. More than 1,000 varieties exist. Some avocados have purple skin, though most are green.

Botanically speaking, the avocado fruit is actually a large berry. People have been growing avocados for a very long time - an avocado pit that was thousands of years old was found in one archaeological site in Mexico! Today, they are grown around the world.

Did you know? Avocados are most known for being the principal ingredient in guacamole, a savory green dip or sauce. But in many places, avocado is eaten as a dessert!

How to Draw an Avocado Step 01

1. Begin by drawing an irregular shape using a long, curved line. Double the line back upon itself to form a teardrop shape, but don't give it a pointed top. Instead, draw two small humps where the point would be. This outlines the sliced cross-section of the avocado.

7. Draw the avocado's arms and hands. For each arm, draw two curved lines extending from the body. Use curved lines, connected on each end, to draw the cuff of the glove at the end of the arm. Then, use a series of long, narrow, "U" shaped lines to outline the hand and fingers.

8. Draw a leaf on the avocado's stem. Extend a pair of narrowly spaced curved lines, and allow them to meet at a sharp point. This forms the vein of the leaf. From the base of the leaf, draw two more curved lines, and bring them to a point just beyond the tip of the vein. This outlines the leaf itself. Finally, extend pairs of short, straight lines outward from the vein and allow them to meet at points. These form the leaf's secondary veins.
