Easter is just around the corner!
We’re helping out the Easter Bunny this year by shipping gift boxes of avocados to families all over the USA. If you order this week, the avocados will be picked, placed into a box, and sent to your family and friends. It takes about a week for the fresh fruit to being softening, so there should be fresh avocados ready to eat by Easter and during the days following Easter.
Avocados Picked Daily and Shipped to Your Home
Here is a box of 6 avocados that we shipped to Vermont last week. It only took a few days and they were sitting on a kitchen counter in Barre, Vermont! We pick them from the tree, place them in the box, deliver them to the post office, and they arrive on your doorstep a few days later. What could be fresher than that? No trip to the grocery store is necessary.
A Big Bowl of Avocados on Your Table
Our niece and her husband ordered a box of avocados last week and put them into a beautiful bowl. So cheerful! These are Fuerte avocados (say “Foo-Air-Tay”) — a winter variety with thinner skins and shaped like pears.
The skins of Fuerte avocados can be peeled right off when they’re ready to eat! They have a really full flavor…my favorites! We will have these for another two weeks, and then the season will be finished. Don’t worry though, because the bumpy skinned Hass avocados that you love will still be available for months to come.
Baby Bok Choy and Avocado Deviled Eggs
