The Florida-Keys-native ‘Russell’ avocados have a reputation for flaunting their fabulous foot-long fruits. Nutrient-rich and ready to love, these avocados taste similar to their grocery store cousin, the Hass, but are heavy-hitters, weighing in around 2 lbs each!

The rare gemstones produce elongated avocados with smooth-skinned exteriors and creamy, savory interiors ready for any Instagram-worthy ‘Russell’ Avocado toast post.

    Well packed!

    I ordered the Russel avocado and two pineapple plants. They arrived in the same box, each packaged securely to the box. They didn’t look like they had a rough journey at all. I let them all sit outside of the box with partial sunlight to rest before planting. Many of the leaves of the tree fell off, as expected, but there was new growth right behind it. Still alive (so far)! I do not have a green thumb at all so I’m hoping it makes it!
