GIVEAWAY! Enter for your chance to win 8 free Avocados: Straight from the tree to your door!

If you’re here now… this contest is over, but there’s a new one for April 2013! Click here to enter.

I have many exciting things going on right now, and I’d like to tell you about them, but I’ll save that for later—for now I’ll just tell you about the giveaway!

Here’s the story:

Last week I tweeted about avocados. Obviously because avocados are awesome, and I eat one everyday. I got a response from @SoCalAvocados with a link to their site. I clicked on the link and found…

Mail Order Avocados straight from a family’s ranch in California!

The Tierra Rajada ranch has been around since 1935, and has 25 acres of mature avocado trees that they began growing in the 1960’s. Avocados are unique because they do not ripen before they are picked. At Tierra Rajada, they are hand selected and picked, and mailed to customers right away.

I calculated pricing (free shipping), and to buy 12 avocados (which comes with an additional 4 free ones), that is $10 cheaper than buying them from the grocery store. Sold! I ordered some, and asked if they’d be interested in doing a giveaway on the blog. (They said yes!)

One lucky person will be chosen randomly on Saturday of this week (March 12th) to win 6 avocados of one variety, plus two more of different varieties.

My avocados came yesterday in the mail

Did you know there are several avocado varieties? Today, I received Haas, Pinkerton, Bacon, and Fuerte. The avocados come in their “just picked” from the tree form—picked and sent in the same day! There are instructions on the SoCal Avocados website about how to store, care for, and ripen avocados. Plus, they have recipes and other great information.

The avocados are shipped right after they’re picked when they’re still hard. So they’re not damaged in transit at all, and you ripen them once they arrive.
My box of avocados had a few surprise lemons in it!

Here’s a tip for ripening avocados from So Cal Avocados (check out more on their site!):

“Paper bags help to ripen avocados faster than if you just left them out on the kitchen counter. By putting unripe avocados into a paper bag, you can get them to ripen one or two days faster! If you want your avocados to ripen even faster, put a banana, tomato or apple in the bag. These fruits give off ethylene gases that speed the ripening process. You can have your avocados go from hard, green and unripe to perfect consistency from one to three days.”

I can’t wait to see who wins!
