Important Information About
Your avocados may arrive ripe and ready to eat. As needed, allow them to ripen on the counter at room temperature, as refrigeration will stop the ripening process.
Firmness is the best indicator of ripeness. With your hand, apply a gentle pressure to the avocado. If it is hard, it is not ripe. Check avocados daily. Once the avocado yields easily to gentle pressure, it is ready to be enjoyed.
We’ll let you in on a little secret about your Apeel pineapples: even though they might look green on the outside, they’re juicy, sweet, and ready to eat! What’s more, just like an orange, they won’t get sweeter or riper the longer you let them sit.
You can tell your limes are ripe usually by their fragrance and vibrant green hue. Their skin will be taut and the fruit will feel slightly heavier in your hand than in an unripe state.
Ripe avocados will keep for two to three days in the refrigerator. When ready to eat, simply cut around the pit and pull your avocado apart to remove it. Scoop out the creamy flesh into a bowl to enjoy.
Enjoy upon arrival or cut the pineapple into slices or chunks to store in the refrigerator and enjoy as desired. Here’s how to properly cut your pineapple:

Your avocados may arrive ripe and ready to eat. As needed, allow them to ripen on the counter at room temperature, as refrigeration will stop the ripening process. Your pineapple may arrive ripe and ready to eat as well, however if it is still darker green you should allow it to rest on the countertop until slightly yellow around the ‘eyes’. As the color turns to all yellow or gold, it is starting to over-ripen and needs to be consumed or frozen quickly. You can tell your limes are ripe usually by their fragrance and vibrant green hue. Enjoy all these ingredients in Chef Gida’s Slushie Pineapple Margarita with Hawaiian Hibiscus Salt Recipe and her Guacamole Recipe, crafted with love in her local Kaua’i kitchen.

The box cam badly damaged and the fruit inside was also damaged but still edible. The pineapple (of which I have only had two out of four) was not very sweet or ripe. According to the website the pineapple will not ripen any further one it is picked. The avocados were rock hard so I have not tried them yet. Overall I am not that happy.
The box came just in time for a long three day weekend holiday. I made the margarita from a recipe card in the box - frozen pineapples, the guava syrup (in the box), and limes (in the box). It was a really good and refreshing take on margarita’s!
Hi Victoria! We're SO happy that the box arrived in time for the holiday weekend. What a delicious treat! Thank you for sharing your feedback. Cheers! ~Jenny
