2016 California Avocado Season Winding Down

It’s that time of year again. Summer is coming to a close, and with it, the California Avocado season begins to wind down as we head into fall. 

By now, most California Avocado growers have wrapped up harvests, or will be wrapping up harvests soon. We expect that in the coming weeks availability will decrease; so when you are shopping remember to check the avocado label for “California” or “USA.”

Because California Avocado trees bloom in the spring and are harvested the following year, the fruit you enjoy next year is currently on the tree maturing. So rest assured, our growers will carefully tend to these ‘baby’ avocados until they are ready for harvest next season.
