Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and that means big business for avocado growers.

The California Avocado Commission expects Americans to consume a record-breaking 87.3 million pounds of avocados for Cinco de Mayo celebrations.

The news is even better for California growers since avocado season is already underway, and supply is expected to be enough to meet demand.
