Product Description

Ocado Small Ripen at Home Avocados.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Product Information



Store at room temperature.

Never keep hard, unripe avocados in the fridge - they will not ripen.

Prepare & Use

Ripening of Avocados:
To test if an avocado is ripe, gently, squeeze the fruit in the palm of your hand.

Ripe, ready-to-eat fruit will be firm but will yield to gentle pressure.
Ripe avocados will keep for 2-3 days, store them in the fridge to prevent over-ripening.

To accelerate ripening, place avocados in the fruit bowl alongside other fruit or, better still, put them into a paper bag with a banana or a kiwifruit.
The ethylene gas released by the other fruit will stimulate the avocados to ripen more quickly.

How to Prepare an Avocado:
1. Cut all the way around the avocado stone.
2. Twist the 2 halves of the avocado apart.
3. Use a spoon to scoop out the stone.
4. Score along the skin and peel off in strips.

Rating: 2 star out of 5

ordered a few times

They were mostly fine and I was happy but last time, one went straight to the bin and the others needed immediate consumption. Such a shame but pot luck with these is risky

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Over ripe on day 1

Either Ocado think we wont notice, or they have nobody on quality control for fresh produce. Bizarre, but this is happening far too often on fruit and veg.

Not a good buy!

Likewise with other reviews. Ordered 2 packs and cut them on day of delivery and not one could I use. Binned them all as all brown and inedible. 10/10 for Ocado Customer service though.

Ripen at home? Straight in the bin!

As other reviewers, these avocados were brown, squishy and unusable only one day after arrival and still well within the "best before" date. Unfortunately too late to get my money back. Will not be buying again

Very Disappointing

Arrived already ripe so pointless purchase. Will sadly never buy again

Prawn Cocktail–style Wraps with Avocado and Red Pepper Mayonnaise

Cook's Note To cut up a pepper with minimum effort, slice the top and bottom off, then cut a lengthways slit in one side – you can now “unroll” the pepper, and simply slice away the seeds and membrane. Cut the flesh into fine slices, then dice. Variation Add some chopped fresh mango to jazz things up a little.

Cook's Note Slightly bitter leaves such as curly endive are perfect for this salad. Try to buy salad leaves loose, rather than already packaged in bags, as they will keep for far longer.
