      We would love to, however travelling to Dominica is too arduous. Too much loitering at airports waiting for transfer flights to Dominica is not alleviated by the enjoyment of the avocados, as we still have to contemplate the same arduous return flight.

    Beautiful! Whether it is called a fruit or vegetable, I love eating it. I try to have one a day. There are times they are sold in a package of 5 for $3.99 or a little more. I do my best not to purchase them and wait when they are reduced, sometimes 5 for $2.99. In my estimation, this is a normal price. :)
    What I have observed in this Toronto (those who reside, as consumers here should observe it), when prices are high, they are not purchased, soon enough the owners are forced to reduce them. Then they are bought as hot bread. :) This is the trick consumers must learn especially in these so-called progressive countries. The cost of living is high.
    I have learned it. Unless it is urgent (only for entertaining) will I purchase the normal price.
    Fellow D/cans, Google the health benefits of Avocados. Eat/drink your fruits and vegetables and let us remain healthy for as long as we possibly could, in addition to being kind to one another.
    God bless!

    To think there is such an abundance of such beautiful avocados on our blessed island and I am forced to pay almost £4 for one avocado, ( as I absolutely love them) at Blue Mountain in Harlesden!

    If only………..
