|Spanish term or phrase: aguacate lauraceo americano|
|Found on a list of ingredients in a nutritional supplement.|
|(American) avocado (pear)|
The scientific name for avocado pear is Persea americana, and it is of the Laurel family (LAURACEAE).
So I think that this is simply avocado said in a complicated way! You could say American avocado but I think it is unnecessary

|Thank you, Hazel for the prompt reply. Having lived in Mexico, I know that the aguacates there are thin- and smooth- skinned. I wonder if "Americana" would refer to what we call the "Florida", i.e., thick- and wrinkled variety.|
