The Calavo Hostess Book
The front cover of the pamphlet features primarily a white background, with a blue title reading The Calavo Hostess Book, below which is more text, Recipes And A Guide For Serving California's Aristocrat Of Salad Fruits. The upper left corner features a color drawing of a half shell of calavo resting on a bed of lettuce, with salt and pepper shakers in the red background. Irregular red lines frame both the drawing and the title text. The back cover has red text reading Calavo, Reg. U.S. Pat. Off. Calavo Growers Of Calif, Suggestions. Three salad recipes follow, then text reading Printed In The U.S.A. The inside front cover and next four pages describe what a calavo is, how to tell when it is ready to eat, plus the health benefits of the fruit. Nine more, single-page recipes follow, each accompanied by a color drawing.
