Storage

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.

Never been a problem

Order every time we shop & never had a problem. Perfect size!

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Tiny and mouldy. False economy.

I bought both a set of these and a set of the more expensive 'already ripe' avocados. These turned out to be the false economy. I had to throw away 50% of them because they were furry, mushy and disgusting. Also they are all absolutely tiny compared to the higher priced ones. These turned out, by price to actually useable weight, to be way more expensive than the higher priced ones. Don't bother with these.

Different experience to other reviews

These are a great size for one. Mine arrived unripe on a Sunday. I left them in a fruit bowl and by Tuesday they were perfect and by Thursday still good. Slightly brown inside but only from bruising not rot. Bruising probably occurred when i squeezed them to check for ripeness

Rating: 1 star out of 5

not much luck with these

These were rubbish and went in the bin. We have more luck with the larger ones which are sold as ready to eat.

mouldy & mushy

Bought on the Thursday, went to make guacamole on Saturday and 3 were mouldy. Didn't bother opening the 4th one. Disappointed!

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.
