Grower Fresh Avocado
  • Creamy, Versatile and Grower Fresh from Awanui?
    We Can Help With That

    Our buyers travel the country to bring you the very best of New Zealand’s fruit and vegetables. They work directly with growers throughout Aotearoa, to deliver on Countdown’s Grower Fresh promise – meaning you can have the freshest fruit and veg on your table. Fruit like creamy, versatile avos.

    To get the plumpest, most gorgeous avocados they go a long way. To places like Awanui, where the sunshine, fertile soil and the green thumb of longtime grower Alistair Nicholson and his team at King Avocados produce the kind of avocados that have kept us coming back for years. As produce buyer Estelle puts it, “that’s a lot of guacamole.”

    Smashed on toast, blended into smoothies, or added to any meal that needs a creamy, satisfying kick – we can’t get enough of healthy, delicious and oh-so versatile avos! Our Grower Fresh avos are sourced directly from growers like King Avocados in Awanui, with the warm Far North climate ensuring they’re packed with vitamins and good-for-you fats. Grower Alistair Nicholson suggests pressing “the little button” at the top on an avocado to check for ripeness – if it wiggles easily, you’re good to go. Enjoy them your way or try out one of our fresh spring recipes below.

Tips

    Avocados are one of the few fruits to contain fat. The fat is the good kind, monounsaturated, that helps to lower blood cholesterol.

    Avocados are also a good source of dietary fibre to support digestive health.

    Store avocados at room temperature until ready to use. To speed up the ripening process, place them in a brown paper bag with an apple or banana. Once ripe, store them in the fridge for up to three days. If cut, squeeze over some lemon juice to prevent discolouring, then keep refrigerated in an airtight container.
