Organic Mini Avocados

Nutrition Benefits

Packed with nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, the avocado is a super tasty and versatile superfood that is part of both a heart healthy and diabetes-friendly diet.

How to Select

Look for avocados that feel heavy. The skin should be dark, with a hint of green, and taut, with no dents.

How to Store

If avocados at the market are green and unripe, you can ripen them at hoe. Put them in a brown paper bag out of direct sunlight. Within three days they’ll be perfect. Press the skin gently. It will be tender but not too soft.
