FAQs about Reed avocados
Organic produce is grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers. To qualify as organic in the United States, produce must be grown in soil that has not had contact with any of these prohibited substances within the last three years.
While organic Reed avocados are grown using more environmentally friendly practices, the associated health benefits are negligible. Since the avocado has a thick, inedible skin, you're unlikely to consume any chemicals used to grow them.
Avocados are at the top of the "Clean 15" list of produce that contains the lowest levels of pesticides. Softer fruits like strawberries, nectarines, peaches, and grapes are considered among the "Dirty Dozen" which absorb the highest amount of pesticides and should be a priority if you're deciding where it's more important to go organic.
If the avocado isn't ripe yet, you can store it on the counter for up to five days as it ripens. The skin of the Reed avocado doesn't change color as it's ripening, so you'll need to regularly test the avocado's softness to determine when it's ripe.
Once the avocado is ripe, you can retain its ripeness by keeping it in the refrigerator for two or three days.
Once you've cut into an avocado, the flesh will begin to turn brown anywhere that it's exposed to the air. Leaving the pit in place will protect the flesh from oxidation in the area where the pit sits. To protect the rest of the flesh, rub it with lemon or lime juice and cover it in plastic wrap. Consume the rest of the avocado as soon as possible for the best flavor and freshness.
