IRVINE, CA - The California Avocado Commission has announced the arrival of this year’s fresh California avocado crop. Foodservice operators can expect a solid supply of fresh California avocados come April and available through Labor Day. The Commission expects the crop to add rich flavor, silky texture, and local, seasonal appeal to a range of dishes.
The versatile fruit can be prepared in a variety of ways. The Fresh California Avocado & Mushroom Sandwich is a satisfying lunch that combines with market-fresh tastes and bright, spring colors.
The California Avocado Flatbread pairs the always crowd-pleasing flavors of bacon and avocado. And as the weather heats up and customers seek flavorful salads, the Spicy Carrot, Cucumber, and Fresh California Avocado Salad helps to add an Asian flair to foodservice operators' menus.
