Most of our avocados this time of year come from Mexico. Mainly, Michoacán. Here’s a little background information about Michoacán and avocados from Mexico.
How do I choose a ripe avocado?
There are five stages of ripening:
Light green - very firm. The avocado will be ready to eat in about five days.
Medium green - firm. The avocado will be ready to eat in about three days.
Breaking - somewhat firm. The avocado will be ready to eat in one day.
Pre-ripe - somewhat soft. The avocado can be used for slicing.
Dark ripe - softer, The avocado is ready for all uses.
Can I ripen an avocado faster?
Sure, just put your avocado in a brown paper bag on the counter. That will trap in the gas that helps the avocado ripen. Add a banana or tomato to the bag to produce more ethylene gas, which will ripen your avocado even faster.
How do I stop a cut avocado from turning brown?
Air oxidizes avocado pulp, so create a barrier by squeezing lemon or lime juice onto the avocado.
Why are avocados so expensive?
Avocados are sold according to their size, which is determined by how many avocados fit into a standard box. Teeny tiny avocados are size 84, meaning you can fit 84 avocados into the box. Once you remove the skin and the pit from those avocados, there’s not much pulp left to enjoy.
The extra-large avocados are size 28, meaning you can only fit 28 avocados into that same box! Those extra-large avocados have time to develop an extra-rich buttery flavour and smooth texture. But they are harder to find, as not all avocado producers are willing to leave the fruit on the trees that long and risk them falling or being damaged by weather or pests. We carry extra-large avocados because although we pay a premium, the quality and flavour of those avocados just can’t be beat!
What should I eat with avocado?
Avocados can help your body absorb alpha and beta carotene, so it’s a good idea to eat it with foods that are rich in vitamin A like mango, sweet potato, carrot and kale. Avocados also taste great with salty cheeses like queso fresco or queso duro and flavours like cilantro, mint, chili peppers, nutmeg, lemon and lime. Here's our avocado smoothie recipe!
