Avocado, Gem

Out of stock

Del Rey Avocado (CA)

Bred and researched at the University of California Riverside, the Gem originated from a Gwen avocado seedling grown in
Camarillo, CA. Just one of the thousands of seeds planted during the trials, Gem was selected for its post-harvest and eating
qualities, and its ideal growth habits, which benefit growers and the environment.

Gem Avocados have smooth, gold-flecked skin with flesh that boasts a high oil content resulting in a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture. They are larger than regular avocados with a slightly nuttier flavour.

If unripe, leave on counter or place in paper bag at room temperature. Once ripe, store in fridge for up to a week.

Avocados provide thiamin, riboflavin, and vitamin A, and in some varieties, the flesh contains as much as 25 percent unsaturated oil. With all their good fats, they help with heart health and Type 2 Diabetes.

Can't go wrong with guacamole or slicing up a few and putting on a sandwich. If like the PCH crew (aka millenials), you've obviously already put it on toast...

Avocados are long thought to have originated in South Central Mexico and are classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae. Surprisingly, they're also known as an alligator pear! Pear? Yes! Avocados are considered a fruit! Avocado trees are partially self-pollinating and are often propagated through grafting to maintain a predictable quality and quantity of the fruit.
