It is disappointing to hear of your less-than-satisfying experience with your recent avocado purchases. Avocados are available year-round from multiple sources of supply. The peak season for California Avocados is spring through fall. The maturity of avocados from different origins can affect the texture, quality and overall eating experience. If it is California Avocado season and you are experiencing these issues on fruit with a Price Look Up (PLU) sticker that says California on it, please contact us so that we can look into the issue.
As part of our retail outreach, we provide handling, ripening, storage and display information and materials to retailers to educate them on proper handling for avocados at store-level.
If you haven’t already, it’s a good practice to make your produce manager aware of any concerns you experience so they can address them.
If all else fails, consider ordering California Avocados online from one of our growers who are currently offering this service.
