A delicious 8kg box containing creamy Zutano avocados farmed by Sergio’s family farm, and harvested without any chemical treatment. These avocados are grown with nature’s synergy between natural underground water springs and the pollination from bees, a technique Sergio and his wife Dina learnt from Sergio’s grandparents when they took over the farm 30 years ago.
The creamy texture of the Zutano avocado almost melts in the mouth. The skin is thin and it remains green even when ripe. With the long shelf life and the great versatility of avocados, you’ll easily eat your way through this delicious box!
Storage and shelf life
When you receive these avocados, they will take around 1 week to mature as they have been harvested only 4 days earlier. Unripe avocados kept at 7-10°C with good air flow, will last 2-4 weeks. Mature avocados kept at 2-4°C will stay fresh for 1-2 weeks. However their best taste is expressed at room temperature.
Perfect on top of your morning bread (with chilli flakes, sea salt and cracked pepper), as guacamole, in a smoothie or in fresh salads for your daily serving of healthy fats.
Did you know?
Avocados are a great source of healthy fats, fiber and are vitamin and mineral rich, in particular B-vitamins, vitamin C, and magnesium.
Order before Thursday 12.00 to be guaranteed to receive Saturday’s fresh harvest on the following Tuesday or Wednesday. Deliveries are once weekly.

On a hillside in the Algarve, Portugal, Sérgio grows lush avocado trees.
The avocado farm started with Sérgio’s father, more than 25 years ago. Back then, the fruit was so unique that nobody in the area knew how to eat an avocado until Sérgio’s family introduced them into the Algarve region. They were true pioneers.
The whole family grows avocados during 8 months of the year with the varieties Fuerte, Beacon, Hass and Reed.
All the avocados ripen naturally, without the use of ethylene gas. To find out when each is in season, click here.
In harmony with nature, his 16-year-old son Bernardo sets up hives on the same hillside to enable the bees to pollinate the avocado trees with different gender (“he” and “she”) flowers. This is a prerequisite for the bearing of fruit.
Sérgio’s farm also sells their delicious honey called “Mel” in our shop. Be sure to check it out!
On another nearby farm, Sérgio and his wife Dina grow grapefruits. When they planted their grapefruit trees 10 years ago, they were again pioneers in the area with the first grapefruit production in the Algarve (Portugal).
