The fruit of the avocado tree, also called an avocado (or avocado pear or alligator pear), has a buttery flesh when ripe
The avocado (Persea americana), a tree likely originating from south-central Mexico, is classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae. The fruit of the plant, also called an avocado (or avocado pear or alligator pear), is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed. Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating, and are often propagated through grafting to maintain predictable fruit quality and quantity. The fruit of domestic varieties has a buttery flesh when ripe. Depending on the variety, avocados have green, brown, purplish, or black skin when ripe, and may be pear-shaped, egg-shaped, or spherical. Commercially, the fruits are picked while immature, and ripened after harvesting.
I'm not sure when avocado became trendy or 'hip' or well, just everywhere on menus in the Western world. In particular, on breakfast/brunch menus.

My wife said you can freeze these, I don't know much about them and have only been eating them in the last few years.

I love salmon and avocado on an "everything" bagel! My recipe has cream cheese, slivered red onion, capers, avocado, and lemon-pepper dill seasoned baked salmon. The combination of flavors is outstanding. If someone had allergies or other issues with the "everything" mixture, a plain bagel...
I had a couple of "misfits" avocados that were almost ripe and really needed using up. They tend to be best used in something rather than eaten as is with them being "seconds" so to speak. There's usually ouly bruising or size issues with them or they have skin problems that just mean people...
