The South African Avocado Season has just started!

We anticipate a strong 2021 South African avocado crop which will most certainly decrease the current local retail price.

We will start the first week in March 2021 with the Fuerte cultivar, considered by many to be the best tasting avocado!

The Fuerte variety has a smooth, medium-thin skin that peels easily, with dense, pale green flesh. It is marginally oily with a rich, creamy flavor and notes of hazelnut.

What's the best way to ripen an avocado at home?

We get asked this alot, so here's our top tips to help you ripen to perfection.

  • Avocados ripen best in a brown paper bag, with an apple or banana placed in the bag too.
  • Another way to check the ripeness is to see if the round stem at the top comes off easily. If it does, and you see green inside, your avo will be ready and easy to peel.
  • If you'd like to prolong the life of your ripened avo, it can last an extra day or two in the fridge.

    For deliveries as well as collection at AvoFit (in Elarduspark) we would prefer it if you could book and pay your order online as far as possible to avoid close contact between drivers and customers.

    For your and our safety, we ask that you use the necessary protection (gloves, masks & hand sanitizer).

    How can I store a cut avocado in the best way?

    1. With lemon, lime juice, or vinegar

    If you want to store a cut avocado, it is best to sprinkle the surface with an acidic agent such as lemon, lime juice, or vinegar to prevent discolouration.

    2. Keep in the fridge with an air-tight container

    Keep cut avocados and dishes containing avocados such as guacamole in the fridge – either in an air- tight container or covered with cling film, which is best gently pressed on the food surface.
