GOURMET GIFT: Fresh-Picked Avocados & Avocado Recipes

A fresh-picked, healthy gift.


Last month we wrote about California Avocados Direct, a business started by a fourth-generation California farm family.

The plump Hass avocados are fresh-picked to order and shipped that day, along with a note from the farmer about when they’ll be at peak ripeness (in about 10 days, so there’s plenty of time to plan how to serve them).

We sent some gift boxes to family members as a Cinco de Mayo surprise, and got such enthusiastic thanks that we’ve added the avocado gifts to our new gourmet gift store,

Avocados are a perfect gift for healthy eaters, anyone with allergies (gluten, lactose, etc.), vegetarians and vegans. And since fresh fruit and vegetables are de facto kosher, we’ll be sending them as gifts to kosher friends as well.


Check out these lovely avocado gifts, and think of them as a healthy and nutritious present for Father’s Day (Sunday, June 21st). Shipping is included in the price, and your gift supports family farming in America.
