Avocado = Testicle?

I'm just nuts about these!

Yes, that’s right. The uber-trendy avocado gets its name from the Aztec word “ahuacatl” which means testicle.  Appropriately named as avocados often “grow in pairs and hang heavy on the tree.”  Think about that next time you slice open a ripe one.

Thank you Adam Sternbergh & New York Magazine for that delightful nugget.
