How to conserve avocados properly
In Tropicultura we collect the avocados the same day we send them to you. And it takes the avocados from 5 to 10 days to fully ripen so that you can enjoy them in your dishes, salads or healthy snacks. As most other tropical fruits you know your avocado is ripe when it yields to gentle pressure. Until it reaches full ripeness keep your Bacon Organic Avocado small box at room temperature between 18ºC to 22ºC. Be sure not refrigerate before it is ripe, since lower temperatures might halt the ripening process, and even if taken out of the fridge the avocado might not be able to ripen properly.
Why you should never put your organic avocados in the fridge?
Have you ever asked yourself why freighted avocados from other continents do not taste as they should? For those avocados to endure the trip and get to the store shelf intact, they are stored at lower temperatures during a journey that might easily last more than two weeks. Therefore, those avocados can NEVER ripen properly and their taste will always be ordinary at most. You only might consider cooling a bit more your avocados once they are fully ripe.
