Paradise Grove Avocados Review and Giveaway



I LOVE Avocados! Give me an Avocado and a spoon and I am one happy camper! I was thrilled when I received the offer to review Paradise Grove Avocados

Avocados are free of cholesterol and sodium. They are chock full of anti-oxidants, vitamin E and Vitamin C. They are high in fiber and there are only 5 grams of monounsaturated fat per serving and they taste great!
A little about Paradise Grove:
Blessed by the coastal climate near the Pacific Ocean, Paradise Grove Hass Avocados are some of the finest.
Unlike Chilean and Mexican groves where the fruit is harvested when immature and therefore watery, at Paradise Grove, our farmers cultivate our Avocados until they reach optimal quality and size, at a maximum weight of 8 ounces. At that size, the fruit is about three times larger than those found in grocery stores.
They hand clip them from the trees when mature but still with green skin. This method leaves a stem nub on the fruit. Ones missing this likely weren't hand-picked and, instead, fell to the ground.
With care, Paradise Grove can harvest the fruit nearly 10 months out of every year, from December to October.
We ship all Avocados purchased via our website directly from the Grove to you for maximum freshness. Because it takes about 7 to 10 days for them to ripen, depending on the time of year, when you receive your Avocados, they still may be hard.
As they ripen, our Avocados' thick skin turns dark green or black. When ripe, the Avocado is firm but yields to gentle squeezing. The skin is pliable for easy peeling. The pale green flesh inside is velvety smooth and tastes slightly nutty. We guarantee they’ll remain fresh and tasty up to 7 days, refrigerated. You may even puree and freeze our Avocados.

I use Avocados often. While I do enjoy guacamole, there is so much more you can do with an avocado! Try my Avocado Ranch Dressing or my Mango Avocado Salsa. There are more recipes on the Paradise Grove Avocado website!



I received a box of 6 avocados. The avocados that I received from Paradise Grove were the largest avocados that I have ever seen. They were a lovely vibrant green. I put a couple of the avocados in a bag with a banana to help them ripen. They were ready in just a few days and are absolutely delicious. If you love avocados and want the best then you need to check out Paradise Grove.

Buy them online.
Win them! One lucky reader will receive a box of 6 Paradise Grove Avocados.
