Our avos

What types of avocados do you sell?

Although we love each and every avocado variety, we do have a favourite. The Hass. We love everything about this type, its creamy texture, super delicious taste, and easy to peel skin. And this means we only grow and deliver these types. Find out more about Hass.

How long is the Hass avocado season?

Late July to February for these creamy & delicious beauts.

Will your avos be available all year round?

Oh, how we’d love to dine on these fruits 365 days a year. But this is just simply not the case. At some point Mother Nature decided that sometimes you can just have too much of a good thing, so made these fruits seasonal superstars (late July till Feb). Because we want to ensure our fruit is of the best quality, we only supply over the season. You’ll just have to grab them while you can.

How long will my avos take to ripen?

If you’re like us, you’ll want to eat an avocado as soon as you’ve bought it. But, like a lot of beautiful fruit and vegetables, you have to wait for them to be ready first. The natural ripening process for avocados is affected by their environment and the time of the year they’re picked. For example, at the start of the season avos take a little longer (around 2 weeks) to naturally ripen in your fruit bowl. While mid-to late season avos can naturally ripen pretty quickly (less than a week).

But of course if you really, really need to, you can speed up this natural process. Find out how.


Can I order a one-time delivery?

Absolutely. We offer a one-time delivery option when you reach the Basket.

How does your repeat order work?

Hooray – you want to get a regular avo fix! Our repeat order option allows you to have a delicious box of avos sent to you weekly, fortnightly, or monthly. Simply head to our Store and select the box type you prefer, then choose how frequently you would like the avos to be sent. We’ll then send you a box of avos at the frequency you’ve chosen. Easy as that.

How do I change my repeat order frequency?

It is easy to change your order frequency. Simply log into your Account and go to ‘Subscriptions’. Click on ‘Change Order Frequency’ then you will be asked what frequency you would like to change to. Select your preference and then confirm by going through the checkout process. We will process this change as a new order, so it is best to change the frequency when you’d like a new box of avos to be sent.

How do I change my box type if I have a repeat order?

Looking to get a larger or smaller box of avos? No problem. To do this you will need to cancel your existing repeat order and start a new one with the preferred box.

How will I know when my next box is due?

Go to the ’Subscriptions’ page of your Account and you will be able to see your next renewal date there.

How do I change the date of my next repeat order?

What if I’m not 100% happy with my order or the fruit is damaged?

First of all, we’re really sorry to hear this. Although we try our hardest to care for these fruits every step of the way, sometimes things just go a little pear shaped. So, if for some reason you’re not happy with the quality, then we’ll give you your money back. Just contact us on email within 24 hours of the delivery and we’ll look into this for you.

To help us understand what’s gone wrong, and hopefully prevent it happening again, we ask you take a photo of the ‘sad avo’ and send that to us as well. Refunds take 7 days, and please note, that we can’t accept any issues or claims lodged later than 24 hours after delivery.
