Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to buy avocados?

Avocado season in the United States is May through August. While avocados are available all year long they will have the best flavor during this time.

How do I pick out an avocado?

Ripe and ready to use avocados are usually darker in color. They should also be slightly soft, but not mushy. Look for both the color and feel when picking out an avocado.

Can I add the avocado after the rest of the salsa marinates?

Yes, if you would rather wait until the last minute the avocado can be added right before serving. The lime juice and vinegar do help to slow the browning of the avocado when it is in the salsa.
