It is not unusual at the beginning of the season for fruit to take about 2 weeks to ripen at room temperature. You can put some in a paper bag to help speed it up a few days, just don’t forget them in there. As the season progresses, I will try to put a variety of ripeness in each box, but you will always need to wait at least a week for the first fruit to ripen, I DO NOT SHIP SOFT AVOCADOS.
The Hass avocado season ranges from January until Summer commercially, but we do not start to pick our fruit until it has been on the trees for at least a year, when most growers start picking after the minimum nine months. The longer the fruit remains on the tree, the higher the oil content and creaminess of the fruit. We won’t pick and sell a fruit unless it meets our high standards of quality and flavor. Hass avocados will darken on the outside as they start to ripen and soften. Once slightly soft, but not squishy, they are ready to eat, or refrigerate. Best uses: Hass avocados are extremely versatile and good plain, in salads, on bread and toast, or as a side to almost any dish you are making.
