Avocado Products

Organic AvocadosThe avocado is colloquially known as the Alligator Pear, reflecting its shape and the leather-like appearance of its skin. Avocado is derived from the Aztec word "ahuacatl". Avocados are the fruit from Persea americana, a tall evergreen tree that can grow up to 65 feet in height. Avocados vary in weight from 8 ounces to 3 pounds depending upon the variety. test

Hints: Avocados are very sensitive to cold but may be kept refrigerated in the vegetable crisper. They may be ripened for a few days at room temperature (optimal between 15 and 18 degrees.

This ripening process can be accelerated by placing avocados in a paper or plastic bag. This is further helped by adding an apple, a pear or a banana in the same bag, as these fruits give off natural ethylene.
