Fresh avocados of the Hass variety from the regions of Gatundu North in Kiambu, Gatanga in Muranga and Kianyaga in Kenya. They come from around 430 family farmers who grow them on an average of 0.8 hectares without artificial irrigation – a rarity in avocado cultivation.
Avocados are among the fruits that continue to ripen after being harvested. The family farmers pick them while still hard, and we can easily transport them by ship. You will find instructions on how to ripen the still-hard fruit in your delivery as well as here on this page under storage and shelf life.
When stored in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator at a cool temperature, the fruit keeps for about 10 days. Store the avocados that you would like to eat within the next few days at room temperature in a paper bag together with an apple. If the flesh gives slightly when pressed, the fruit is ripe. Check the avocados for bruises and minor damage as soon as you receive them. If you find mould, remove the affected fruits from the crate.
