Avocado lovers, listen up. Today is your day. Tuesday, July 31 is National Avocado Day. 

The Central Coast is a major producer the creamy, protein-rich green fruit – yes, avocado is a fruit, not a vegetable. 

Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties each harvested about 10,000 tons of avocados last year. 

Avocados are ranked sixth in SLO County for crop production in 2017. 

If all this avo-talk has your craving guacamole, head to your nearest Chipotle restaurant. The Mexican food franchise is offering free guacamole on orders made online or through the Chipotle app.
