As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
California Avocado season is certainly an exciting and delicious time – but when exactly does it occur?
Although you may see avocados in stores all year round, it’s important to know that California Avocados are not available all year round. Each year, California Avocados are in season from spring through summer/early fall, with the bulk of the fruit staying in the Western United States.
Here are some more tips on how to find California Avocados:
- All California Avocados should be labeled with a sticker or label of origin. Be sure to look for the iconic “California” Avocado label to ensure you are getting fresh, locally grown avocados when in season
- Sometimes due to supply-related incidences, retailers will have a different country of origin. If you can’t find conventionally grown California Avocados, don’t forget to check the organic section
- Produce managers at your local grocery store are a great resource for answering questions and helping you find exactly what you’re looking for. Let them know your preference for locally grown fruit
- Many farmer’s markets carry California Avocados when in season. Just be sure to ask the grower/vendor if their avocados are from California
