Meet The Farm

Serendib Farms

Serendib Farms is a small, 10-acre farm located in Redland, Florida run by Wimal & Elita Suaris since 2009.

Embracing the intricacies of producing harder-to-grow and harder-to-find fruit, Serendib has been a tropical, ecological oasis and home to many of the rarest varieties of mangoes, avocados, longan, passion fruit and many other tropical crops. From Sri Lanka and the Philippines, Wimal and Elita share a life-long passion for the cultivation of unique and delicious produce.

Experience

There is a whole world outside of the typical Hass avocados you find at the store. Experience these classic tropical fall avocado varieties that are rare to find outside of their traditional growing regions.

Tasting Notes

These avocados have a range of flavors and textures. Many of them are “juicier” than typical Hass avocados. The Choquette and the Monroe have a delicate and juicy flesh. The Hall and Bernecker are nuttier and have a thicker flesh while still juicy and fruity. The Oro Negro has a rich and creamy flavor.

About The Harvest

With a passion for tropical living, Serendib Farms is sharing with us the rarest varieties of avocados from their 10-acre farm in Redland, Florida. Wimal and Elita Suaris’ Sri Lankan and Filipino roots make them expert growers of this exclusive FruitStand experience.

As a small farm they embrace the short, limited-run harvest windows of their different avocado varieties. We are excited to share a new mix of avocados with you as Wimal and Elita harvest each variety!

Every box you order will include a mix of about 7 lbs (3-4 avocados) of the freshest, rarest avocados Serendib Farms is picking. This experience is a green dream where you will get to try 3 to 4 pieces of fruit made up of 1 to 2 pieces from 2 to 3 different varieties.

Varieties that may be included are: Choquette (October), Hall (October), Bernecker (October), Oro-Negro (November), or Monroe (November)

Escape with us to the mysterious world of Serendib Farms' rare avocados:

Frequently Asked Questions

This item will be shipping FedEx 2-Day air directly from Florida on the ship date indicated on this page and in your email receipt. There is a $9.00 flat rate shipping fee per box added to your order at checkout. You will receive an email with your shipment's tracking number when shipped.

Your fruit may arrive ripe and ready to eat. Although they could take up to 10 days to ripen. The avocados are ready to eat if they give slightly when you apply gentle pressure.

As needed, store and allow the avocados to ripen on the counter at room temperature, as refrigeration will stop their ripening. Once ripe, avocados will keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator.


Slice the entire circumference of the avocado lengthwise. Apply gentle pressure as you twist each side apart in opposite directions. Remove the hard pit with a spoon or knife and discard. Either scoop the flesh out of the avocado or peel the dark skin off and enjoy!

My avocados arrived perfectly under ripe. As a former lifelong Floridian, I do miss the fresh avocados...the ones I received looked like they had just come off the tree!! Looking forward to tasting them. Thanks so much for a great product. Can you do guavas next!!!!

Delectable taste of SoFla in the PNW

So delighted to be able to find ripe, seasonal, Florida avocados available to me in the far corner of the country! It takes me back to the subtropics for a brief moment :)
