As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados
California Avocados come in all different textures, varieties, ripeness and sizes! However, some believe that smaller avocados are lesser quality than medium or large avocados.
There’s a myth that smaller avocados are not yet mature, have a larger seed, or are not as vibrant, green and delicious.
The truth is that the size of an avocado does not indicate the fruit quality or stage of ripeness. An avocados’ seed actually grows with the fruit, so the seed-to-fruit ratio will always be close to the same. Small ripe California Avocados are the perfect size for on-the-go snacks or for your favorite single serving dishes.
The next time you see a smaller avocado at the grocery store or your local farmer’s market, don’t shy away from it!
Be sure to keep an eye out for the iconic California Avocado label, with fruit available during the spring through summer.
