Shipped Directly From Apeel
Currently, over 40% of all food grown goes to waste. It’s a huge number, especially considering that, with our current rate of population growth, there won’t be enough food to feed the planet in the next 50 years. This is an issue that the team at Apeel knew they had to solve.
The solution? Use nature to protect nature.
Apeel offers plant-based protection to lock in moisture and keep out oxygen, two factors that lead to spoilage. This means these avocados will last you two times longer when ripe than your traditional avocado. This also means Apeel can offer the entire tree, including avocados you don't normally see in the grocery store, such as these amazing snackables and big guys that make enough guacamole for a family of five.
And with every purchase, Apeel is donating $1 to The Food Project, an incredible non-profit that uses sustainable agriculture to support local food systems, youth and strong communities.
Apeel is food gone good.
Apeel is a family of plant-derived coatings that fresh food growers, suppliers, and retailers use to keep produce fresh. Produce with Apeel stays fresh two to three times longer, which promotes more sustainable growing practices, better quality food, and less food waste for everyone. For growers, suppliers, and retailers, Apeel is the only postharvest solution that creates an optimal microclimate inside every piece of produce, which leads to extended shelf life and transportability — with reduced reliance on refrigeration and controlled atmosphere.
Apeel is working with all different sized players in the food system, big and small. While these specific avocados are imported by a large packer from Mexico, they are actually SOURCED from what is called a “grower’s network,” which is a network of hundreds of small-scale farms who actually grow the fruit and sell it to the packer. The packer simply makes it possible to get you the fruit as fresh and quickly as possible.
The Food Project’s mission is to create a thoughtful and productive community of youth and adults from diverse backgrounds who work together to build a sustainable food system. Our community produces healthy food for residents of the city and suburbs, provides youth leadership opportunities, and inspires and supports others to create change in their own communities.
This experience is packaged in a facility that handles wheat.

I keep buying them because since I started eating avocados every day, I am no longer anemic. How wonderful to eat something so good that does so much good for my body. My father used to say to stay away because they were fattening, but, I've lost a ton of weight since I started buying your avocados regularly!!!
That's why I keep on buying them right when they are used up, I buy another box!!
These avocados are the best I've had in the US.
Always love my avocados from fruitstand. Order about every other month and never disappoint. Everything is 5 star, from commutation about order, product, packaging and most importantly pricing. I would pay twice as much for a sub par product at the grocery store
They were so good.
Awesome as usual.
A future where more people are motivated to discover and enjoy growers and their craft.
