Redland-Raised Persian Limes
Yep, this juicy bright beautiful lime is grown right here in Redland. Available year round.
Redland-Raised Avocado (West Indian)
Avocado varieties are classified in three groups, known as West Indian, Guatemalan and Mexican. West Indian avocados originated in the tropical lowland areas of southern Mexico and Central America, the Guatemalan and Mexican avocados originated in mid-altitude highlands in Guatemala and Mexico. Different varieties available from late May to March. Make sure you wait until your avocados are ripe. You can tell when you squeeze it and the skin is no longer firm, but rather soft to the touch. If you cut it open early it will be rubbery and have a bitter taste—be patient and remember it is fresh picked so takes a few days to ripen.
