Absolutely. Freezing avocados can be done quite easily and kept stored for 4-6 months. You can freeze avocados whole, in halves, mashed or in pieces. Spritzing them with lemon juice and sealing them in a ziplock bag is the most effective way to keep them tasty for when you want to thaw them out and enjoy them.

We want your avocados from us to be the best you’ve ever tasted, so we have put together this handy guide to keep our fruit in the best condition possible for when you fancy a bit of something delicious on your toast.

There are a tonne of ways to preserve your avocados for longer, especially if you’re buying them in bulk. (we never want to run out either.) Plenty of our customers turn to the internet to ask how to store avocados, so we’ve made it easier for you!

Step One: Buy fresh. This may sound easier said than done. But we’re here to do this part for you. Certified growers of avocados deliver the freshest of the pick right to your door, so you don’t have to worry about previous supermarket handling, cold storage, squeezing or delayed delivery. We organise the freshest produce for you and get it to you fast, so you know you’re starting in the right place with fresh avocados.

Step Two: Once your avocados have arrived, it’s time to store them safely. They will arrive unripe (as they tend to when bought fresh), you can leave them in the box they came in or transfer them to a fruit bowl out of direct sunlight. Heat and sunlight will hasten the ripening process, but too much sunlight can actually cook the avocado from the inside out and leave the flesh browning and mushy. A tad gross when you discover it. Our avocados take about 5-7 days to ripen for consumption.

Note: Once your avocados have ripened, you should ideally consume them within two days. If more than your fill has ripened, store the extra avocados in the fridge. That way they will keep for another week or two, depending on the stage of ripeness they’ve reached.

You can leave avocados in the box they came in or in a fruit bowl out of the direct sun until they ripen, this takes about 5-7 days. Once ripened they should be eaten within two days, or alternatively, you can store ripened avocados in the fridge to keep them fresh for up to a week or in the freezer for 4-6 months.
No, each box of avocados is boxed together based on very similar levels of ripeness.
It depends on their level of maturity, but once bought fresh from us, you can expect your avocados to naturally ripen in 5-7 days out of direct sunlight. While direct sunlight can help the process move more quickly, too much direct sunlight can cause your avocados to cook from the inside and become brown and unsightly. Once ripened, you should consume them within two days for maximum taste and enjoyment and any extras can be frozen or stored in the fridge. See our homepage guide for more information on keeping your avocados fresh.
Placing your avocados in a sunny spot can speed up the ripening process, but we would advise caution because if the sun is too hot, or they are sitting in the sun for too long, the avocados can go bad quickly. Placing them in natural light-filled space, out of direct sunlight is the best way to ripen avocados.
Avocados are teeming with nutrition! They are ripe sources of many vitamins, including K, E, C and B6 and a host of other minerals that your body loves. Avocados are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which is a key structural component of every cell that exists in your body and can help you feel fuller for longer, which is great if you suffer from constant food cravings. Avocados provide support for your immune system health, heart health, eye health as well as providing fibre, which helps your digestive system to function properly and regularly as well as providing a natural detox for your gut.
