How to Peel

Easy Peeling

This simple three-step process will help you get the most out of your
Australian Avocados:

1. Start with a ripe Avocado and cut it lengthwise around the seed. Rotate the halves to separate. Image of cutting an avocado
2. Remove the seed by sliding the tip of a spoon gently underneath and lifting out. (The other common seed-extraction method of striking the seed with a knife can be dangerous and is not recommended.) image of removing avocado seed
3. Peel the fruit by placing the cut side down and removing the skin with a knife or your fingers, starting at the small end. An alternative is to simply scoop out the Avocado flesh with a spoon. Be sure to sprinkle all cut surfaces with lemon juice, lime juice or white vinegar, to prevent discolouration. image of scooping out avocado
