As we head into summer there might be a few daydreams that are top of mind: barbecues, beaches, and for us, California Avocados. California Avocados are the star of summertime meals and the best avocados come from California. We’ve never met a California Avocado that we didn’t like.
We wish they all could be California Avocados…
— aren’t these the correct lyrics to The Beach Boys song? No? Well, they should be.
If we had one wish, it would be that we could eat California Avocados all year long. But because we’re dedicated to fresh ingredients, we know that the best times to enjoy California Avocados are during the spring and summer.
This is why we’re offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner meal kits that feature California Avocados, but only for a limited time.
When is California Avocado season?
California is reputable to have some of the best weather all year long. With such lovely weather, California also produces some of the most delicious harvests in the world.
The lushness of a California Avocado is made possible by the manifestation of several unique factors: fertile California soil, the hand-grown care of seasoned growers, and the pristine California sun.
Depending on the harvest, you can enjoy fresh California Avocados from March to September.
This is how it works:
- March—April: The harvest is ramping up and you can begin to find California Avocados in stores.
- May—July: California Avocados are in peak season! June is California Avocado Month.
- August—September: The season will start to wind down soon. Don’t wait until the end of September, or you might miss your shot to get the best California Avocados.
While you’re out and about, look for the avocados with the “California” label.
