Avocado Trivia

Avocados must reach full maturity before they are picked, but they will not soften on the tree. The tree is actually used as a warehouse; the fruit can be kept on the tree for many months after reaching maturity. Avocados are available year-round from California with the peak in June. (The Hass variety comprises 90% of the California crop). Peak season for Florida varieties is January while peak for imports (mostly from Chile) is October and November.
