Order Florida Avocados Now Before Season Ends

The Florida avocado season is ending, but you still have time to stock up on this delicious and nutritious treat. You’ll want to place your order for Florida avocados today before our final shipment goes out on Monday, October 17. Don’t miss out! Florida avocados are only available from July to October, but our 8-pound fruit tray will keep you in guacamole heaven for a few more tailgate parties and fall cookouts.

A summer staple and cornerstone of the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet, Florida avocados are packed with vitamins A, C and E, the antioxidants that promote heart health. Their high protein content makes Florida avocados an excellent meat substitute, earning this delicious fruit star billing in vegetarian and vegan diets. Avocados do have a high oil content, but it’s the good kind of fat. Dieticians say that Florida avocados are actually a healthier choice than California or Guatemala avocados because they have a lower oil content than other avocado varieties. Florida avocados also have a surprisingly high fiber content which, as dieticians say, helps fill you up but not out.

Avocados ripen after harvesting, not on the tree. When your shipment of Florida avocados arrives, keep them at room temperature until they are ripe, from 2 to 7 days after being picked. To test your Florida avocados for ripeness, hold the fruit in the palm of your hand and squeeze gently. When the fruit yields to gentle pressure, it is ripe and ready to eat.
