The Summer Avocado
Because of our location in the Southern hemisphere, Avocados from Peru are available from June through September in the U.S. And that’s a really good thing, because summer is the best time of all for eating avocados!
Fresh avocados from Peru add a creamy texture and slightly nutty flavor to all your favorite summer dishes. There’s nothing like avocados in a cool summer salad or sandwiches for the perfect summer picnic. And of course, an avocado makes a nutritious, tasty lunch all by itself, eaten right from the shell.
And let’s not forget all the nutrients in an avocado from Peru. They have nearly 20 important vitamins and minerals, and no sodium or cholesterol. Summer is the season for avocados. And the avocados of summer are the ones from Peru.
We are thrilled to be able to bring high-quality Peruvian Hass avocados to the U.S. during the spring and summer, which is the highest period of avocado consumption.
Like just about all fruit, Avocados from Peru come in a nice range of sizes for every serving or preparation application. The way avocado professionals generally measure size is by how many will fit comfortably fit into a 25 pound carton. If you’re interested in knowing just how many or how large each avocado actually is, here’s the official chart.
If there’s one thing that’s important in buying avocados, other than making sure they’re from Peru, it’s that they’re ripe just when you want to eat them. So here’s how you tell. A nice, ripe, ready-to-eat avocado should give a little when you squeeze it. If you’re still not sure, flick the stem with your finger and it should come off easily. Then all you have to do is slice, scoop and enjoy.
