Grower Fresh Avocados


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 – 5 , to be exact. As produce buyer Estelle puts it, “that’s a lot of guacamole.”

And while you can’t go wrong with guac, there are plenty more tasty ways to enjoy avocado – use it to add creaminess to this Avocado and Halloumi Bruschetta or for something unexpected give this Chicken Superfood Pasta with Avocado Pesto a go.

To check for ripeness, Alistair recommends “pressing the little button” at the top – if it wiggles, your avo is ready to eat.
