    One of my Guatemalan students mentioned a fruit similar to the avocado, which he called "chucte." Apparently the scientific name is Persea schiedeana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persea_schiedeana) and it is also called yas and coyo. Is anyone familiar with this fruit under these or any other names?

    Encontré que, también, le dicen chinene, pero en todos lados dejan los nombres sin traducir (chucte, yas, coyo, chinene).
    Te envío un enlace en inglés. Tal vez te sirva.
