Longer-lasting avocados to hit stores this week

National

(WXIX/CNN) – Good news, avocado lovers!

This week, Kroger is going to start selling avocados that last longer.

How?

They’ll be sprayed with a plant-based solution that’s supposed to lock in moisture and block oxygen; in other words, slowing decay.

It’s supposed to last twice as long but cost the same.

You’ll find them in about half of Kroger’s stores.

And it’s not just avocados – they’re testing out longer-lasting asparagus and limes in Cincinnati.

The hope there is that it’ll help you save money and cut back on food waste- something that Kroger committed to back in 2017.
