Earl’s Pre-Conditioned Organic Avocado Program
Pre-conditioned avocados are not yet fully ripe but Earl’s has started the ripening process to ensure they are ready to eat within 2-3 days when stored at room temperature. Green or hard avocados are firm fruit that can take up to 5-10 days to ripen at room temperature depending on the level of maturity.
Stehly and Cunningham farms are located in the San Diego region and focus on fruit only from their orchards. You can be rest assured that you are eating a more mature piece of fruit with high oil content and great flavor. They should be eaten on the firmer side due to their maturity. All of Earl’s other growers on list are grower/shipper/packers and source product from wherever they can including areas as far north as Cayucos and areas in southern California.
How Can You Tell You Have a Mature Piece of Fruit?
* A more mature piece of fruit loses some of its glossiness but will slice smoothly.
* The seed coat will be thin and brown instead of fleshy and white.
* The length of time to ripen is a major indicator. A mature piece of fruit will only take a few days to ripen up and should be eaten firm. They will become rancid if they are too soft.
* The green/yellow flesh turns to a duller, almost mustard color.
