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:

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.

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.
