Produce Tips

  • To keep your avocado’s natural color, brush the surface of a peeled or sliced avocado with lemon juice. Or, cover the pulp with plastic wrap.
  • Hass avocados will turn black when ripe. Most Florida and non Hass avocados will remain green. However, all varieties are ripe when the full fruit gives when squeezed tightly.

Selecting Tips

  • When selecting an avocado, be sure to pick avocados that have firm skin with no soft spots. If an avocado feels mushy or soft, it may be too ripe.
