As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

We didn’t find our lucky charm in a pot at the end of a rainbow, but it is a product of the California sun. Can you guess it? It’s a California Avocado! Everything it touches becomes infinitely more delicious—from guacamole to corned beef sandwiches. That’s why we keep our lucky charm on us at all times.


What did you think that pocket was for? We’ve never been caught without a snack—or without California green on 3/17. Because we want to make sure you’re covered too, here are some recipes to make in a St. Paddy’s Day pinch.

St. Patrick’s Day Guacamole


A leprechaun-sized portion of this delicious guac just won’t cut it. With sharp cheddar, carrots, bacon, parsley and onion weaved throughout this Californian classic, you’ll have even your guacamole-averse friends saying O’ Yum.
