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.
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:
