Testicles

Explanation

The avocado is rich on vitamins (especialy B, E and K) and has a very high content of monounsaturated fat. The word 'avocado' comes from the Spanish word 'aguacate' which in turn comes from the Nahuatl word 'ahuácatl', meaning testicle, a reference to the shape of the fruit. The avocado was known as the 'fertility fruit' by the Aztecs.
