Avocado Types & Tips!April 10, 2015
We’re breaking avocado types & tips on how to get the most out of this amazing fruit!
Here in this lucky country, we are blessed with excellent quality and year-round supply of Australian avocados.
Avocado production in Australia is widespread with orchards found all over, from the Atherton Tablelands, around Bundaberg in Queensland, to south-west Western Australia, which allows for the steady supply of fruit.
You have probably noticed there are a few different avos available at different times of the year. We have put together a little fact sheet to illustrate the different types:
Avocados will ripen naturally in the fruit bowl. If you want to trigger or speed up the ripening process, put them close to a banana. Once an avocado is at its ideal ripeness, store it in the fridge.
You’ll know when an avo is ripe by simply using gentle pressure at the top of the fruit, near the stem, to see if it yields. If it does, it’s ready to eat!
To prevent browning, a cut avocado can be rubbed with lemon juice, lime juice or white vinegar and placed in an air-tight container, or in cling wrap in your refrigerator.
