How to store, ripen and enjoy your Organic Bacon Avocados
In Tropicultura we collect the avocados the same day we send them to you. Depending on the temperature and the conditions where they are stored, It might take them 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 and its stem falls off easily. The skin of Bacon avocadoes stays green when ripe, unlike other varieties like Hass, that turn amost black when ready to eat. Until it reaches full ripeness keep your Organic Bacon Avocadoes at room temperature between 18ºC to 22ºC. Make sure not to refrigerate before it is ripe, since lower temperatures might halt the ripening process, and even if taken out of the fridge afterwards 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. So consuming your avocadoes locally is not only better for the local economy and the planet, but also preserves the exquisitness of the fruit.
