AVOCADOS

The Casotti Group is a large-scale grower of the Hass avocado with extensive new & existing plantings at several of their orchards which have perfect growing conditions, with well-draining, sandy loam soil which is abundant in the South West.

Hass avocados make up for approximately eighty percent of the avocados consumed across the globe. Avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, E, potassium, and folic acid. They are rich in dietary fibre and are known for being a good source of monounsaturated fat, second only to olives. Avocados are buttery and smooth with a mild, slightly nutty taste.

Avocados enable the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients of other foods. Avocados are best stored at room temperature until fully mature. The flesh darkens when exposed to air, to prevent this sprinkle the cut avocado with lemon juice or vinegar and cover in plastic wrap or store in an airtight container before refrigerating.
