Maturity Standards

Avocados are inspected regularly for maturity, defects, size, count and weight as well as containers, container markings and packs. They are tested only until the scheduled ‘maturity release date' for each size and variety as established. After the release date, maturity testing is no longer required.  For information on maturity standards established by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, visit the CDFA website.
