The Avo Club is now delivering Gem Avocados!
The Gem avocado is a relatively new player in the avocado game. They are large and pear-shaped with rough, thick, black skin that is flecked with gold! They have a fantastic, rich flavour and a thicker skin which peels away from the flesh easily, almost like a banana. We think they’re on their way to being the new avo of choice, rivalling the Hass for flavour and quality.
How will I know when the Gems are ready to eat?
Similar to the Hass, Gem avocados will turn from a green to a dark purple colour when ripe, which makes it a lot easier to tell when it’s ready to eat! It should also yield to gentle pressure at the tip.
