Grown in the Golden State from San Diego to Monterey, California Avocados are the must have good for you fruit that makes everyday meals special. They add dynamic flavor and texture to everyone’s favorite dishes and are celebrated each June during California Avocado Month with their peak availability from spring through summer.

We received submissions from fans throughout the state, from San Francisco to San Diego, and are excited to announce the winning must-eat avocado dishes.
