At Clayfield markets we pride ourselves on our quality large avocadoes and always ensure we have ripe and hard fruit for our customers.
To Store Our avocados
•Whole, ripe avocados can be stored in the refrigerator uncut for two to three days
•Cut avocado should be sprinkled with lemon juice, lime juice or white vinegar and placed in an air-tight container in your refrigerator. They should be eaten within a day or two
•If refrigerated guacamole turns brown during storage, simply discard the top, browned layer
Our Ripe Avocados are labeled with ripe and ready stickers for your assurance it is ready to eat
•Did you know that no avocados ripen on trees? It’s actually the harvesting (picking) action that triggers the ripening process!
•To take some of the ‘guess work’ out of ripening for consumers, many wholesalers ensure that Australian Avocados are delivered to retail stores about a day or two before they are ripe
•To ripen an avocado, place the fruit in a plain brown paper bag and store at room temperature until ready to eat. This will usually take two to five days. Including an apple or banana in the bag accelerates the process, as these fruits give off ethylene gas – a ripening agent
•Ripe fruit can be refrigerated until eaten, however, not for more than two or three days
•There is no quicker way to ripen avocados. A natural fruit requires a natural process
