All About Avocados
Everything you wanted to know about avocados but were too afraid to ask.
You want guacamole year-round? There’s only one avocado that can chill with you in summer and relax by the fire in winter. You got it boss — that’s a Hass. Eighty percent of the avocados eaten worldwide are Hass avocados. They’re not only perennial, but they also have a long shelf life and change skin color when ripe — like avocados for dummies! Generous in size with a small seed — means more green, creamy “meat” to eat. Come that Big Game Sunday in February, if you want guac — thank heaven for the year-round Hass.
You are what you eat – that applies to your fruit too. The more good things your avocados absorb while they grow, the more good things will come out when they are in your mouth. With each bite of an Avocado From Mexico, you’re transported to the rich Michoacán soil, basking in the warm sunshine and nourishing rain, and breathing deeply of the coastal air. All the goodness that nourishes avocados from Mexico — from soil to seed to tree to fruit — equals an avocado that’s delicious and wholesome.
