California Avocado Update
As we head into November, 99% of the California avocado growers will be finishing up. Earl’s received our last pallet of California avocados this week. Sad, but true, the California avocado crop is really coming to an end until next year. Sometimes we are fortunate and California avocados will go year round but this year they stop now.
Beware of the origin of your avocado when you are out grocery shopping. The late season California avocado will ripen quickly with high oil and incredible flavor, while the Mexican avocado will ripen slower but will develop better flavor as the season goes on. You may see avocados being sourced from Peru and Chile but Earl’s will only be carrying the Mexican avocado. Earl’s loves avocados as you know so you can count on us for updates as the seasons continue to move.
