Description 

Pre-order for September 2014 Delivery

6 Organic Reed Avocados - approx 1.2 lbs each

Select this product if you are shipping to a location East of the Mississippi River. (If you are shipping to a location West of the Mississippi River, please select the alternate product -- listed to the right.)

Price includes shipping:
Avocados are grown and sent directly from Southern California. So, if you are shipping these babies to a location East of the Mississippi River, they will be shipped via expedited shipping.

(We will remove any shipping charges if they appear on the final order if the order only includes avocados.)

Additional shipping info:
Avocados are shipped directly from the grower in Southern California. To avoid unnecessary shipping fees due to additional weight, please order avocados separately from other, non-perishable products.

Storing and Ripening:
Your Reed avocados will be hard when they arrive. We recommend you store them in the fridge, and bring them out one at a time to ripen/soften on your kitchen counter. It will take 2-4 days before they are ready to eat, depending on the avocado. You will know they are ready - they become soft to the touch and give when you press them lightly. Reeds do not turn black like Hass avocados.

Serving suggestions:
There are so many ways to eat and serves these great fruits, outside of just spooning the meat straight into your mouth. Here are a few suggestions:

Basic Guacamole Recipe
Grilled Avocado with Blueberry Mango Salsa
Linguine with Avocado Arugula Pesto and Parmigiano Reggiano Recipe

If there is not a separate ship-to name and address, the "to" section of the certificate will be left blank, so that you can fill it out however you wish. If you need us to mail a physical certificate to the gift recipient, please let us know.

I never knew what avocados really tasted like...
... until I had these.  I have to be honest, these will spoil you for anything you buy at your local supermarket.  For one glorious time of year, we plan our meals around these big guys.  Breakfast - scrambled eggs rolled up in a tortilla with a couple of slices of Reed avocado. Lunch -- a couple more slices with some salty bacon and fresh tomato on a sandwich. Dinner -- maybe just a half of one, some salt and a spoon.  I can't bring myself to make guacamole with them, because I don't want to cover up any of their flavor, though I suppose a simple guac with some salt, lime and cilantro wouldn't be a crime.

Reed Avocados
We had our first taste of these wonderful avocados last night & what a mouth watering experience!  They are not only large, but oh so creamy & buttery.  I'm so glad I ordered these and will do so every year.
I never knew avocados could be this good.
