Why Buy an Avowest Avocado
Quality avos. Period.
Given we have grown avos for over 40 years, we’ve had a lot of time to refine every stage of the avo-creating process, so you, our avo-aficionado, can get an off-the-charts quality fruit, everytime.

One of the biggest problems for consumers buying avocados is bruising injury. Unfortunately, a lot of this is caused by people squeezing avocados in shops looking for a ripe one. You might squeeze five avocados to find one that is “just right”. You now have your perfect avocado and five bruised avocados finding it.
If you can find avocados that are olive brown like the image below they are almost always ready to eat.
This olive brown colour is the perfect stage to eat Hass avocados. As they ripen further, they become a more purple / black colour. Some people prefer eating them at this stage as they are softer but there is also more likelihood of bruising and rots.
A Hass avocado that has ripened beyond its green colour will usually last in a fridge for up to a week.
Remember put them in the fridge when they have started ripening.
At Avowest we really appreciate any feedback you have whether good or bad. We want our consumers to get a good avocado every time.
