If you love avocados, you'll really love these jumbo avocados. Jumbo avocados stay on the tree longer to achieve their grand size and to maximize their rich, buttery taste and slightly sweet flavor. Try them stuffed with your favorite grains for dinner, slice them up and toss in salads, add them to sandwiches, mash them up for guacamole and dips, or blend them into your morning smoothie.
Please note: Avocados are ready when the flesh yields to gentle pressure. To promote ripening, store avocados in a paper bag at room temperature. Once ripe, place in refrigerator.
Firm avocados will ripen on your counter in 4 to 7 days. They'll yield to gentle squeezing when they are ready to eat. To speed ripening, place firm avocados in a paper bag and store at room temperature for 2 to 4 days.
Storing Ripe Avocados
A ripe avocado gives slightly when gently squeezed. The freshness of a ripe avocado can be preserved by storing it in the refrigerator, where it should keep for up to 5 days.
Storing Cut Avocados
To keep sliced avocado from turning brown, wrap tightly in plastic. A squirt of lemon or lime juice rubbed onto the exposed flesh before you wrap it helps too.
