Avocado Green Mattress

The Avocado Green is a latex hybrid mattress that emphasizes the use of quality, sustainable, organic products.

The Avocado bed is made up of three distinct layers: 1 inch of Dunlop latex foam forms the base, 8 inches of innerspring coils as a support layer, and 2 inches of medium-firm Dunlop latex as a comfort layer.

Avocado offers the option of a pillow-top, which adds an additional 2-inch comfort layer of Dunlop latex foam and changes the firmness. The cover is made of tufted organic cotton with a layer of 100% GOTS organic certified wool beneath the cotton cover.

The Avocado mattress is available in two firmness options in all standard sizes, each 11 inches in height (13 inches with the pillowtop.)

Firmness

As mentioned, the Avocado Green is available with an optional pillow-top, which changes the firmness of the mattress. Without the pillow-top, the Avocado is rated as a 7 on the firmness scale. (That scale runs from 1-10, with 10 being the most firm and 1 being the least firm.)

A 7 is considered medium-firm to firm and is generally a good starting place for most mattress shoppers. With the optional pillow top, the Avocado is rated as a 5.5 – noticeably “more plush.” Avocado notes that the pillow-top may be better suited for side or back sleepers, or those looking for more pressure relief.

Availability

The Avocado is only available online, directly from the manufacturer’s website. Avocado operates an “experience center” in Hoboken, New Jersey, where customers can see, feel and try the mattress before buying online. Avocado previously sold on Amazon, but has discontinued that relationship.

Construction

The Avocado Green is a latex hybrid mattress. It is available with or without a pillow-top. The standard mattress is made up of three distinct layers.

The base layer is 1-inch of 100 percent natural Dunlop latex with an ILD (indentation load deflection) of 36-38. The support core is an 8-inch layer of individually pocketed innerspring coils, divided into three zones to provide varying support across the body.

The comfort layer is 2 inches of medium-firm 100 percent natural Dunlop latex with an ILD of 24-28. The pillow-top features an additional 2-inch layer of the Dunlop latex. The cover on both models is 100 percent organic cotton.

The Avocado Green is GREENGUARD Gold Certified and uses all natural, organic materials. You can read more about the bed’s various certifications and materials sources here.

Shipping

The Avocado Green is compressed, rolled, sealed in plastic, and shipped to your door in a labeled box. There are no parts and no assembly is required. The Avocado mattress is made to order after purchase. Avocado mattresses ship in less than a week and is shipped via FedEx or AGS curbside in another 1-9 days. Shipping is free and available throughout the United States. This includes deliveries to Alaska and Hawaii.

Note:Due to weight, all king and California king mattresses arrive via an in-home partner delivery service. They will be unboxed and set-up in your home. This is free of charge for all king and California king purchases.

Additional Services

Avocado offers in-home delivery, set-up, and old mattress removal for an additional fee of $199. This same fee applies to in-home deliveries throughout the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii. This will be arranged during a 4-hour window during a weekday – this service is not available on weekends.

Unboxing

When the mattress arrives, you should remove it from the packaging as soon as possible. The bed will need up to a few hours to completely decompress and regain its full and proper shape. As noted above, a delivery service will take care of this free of charge for all king and California king bed purchases.

Sleep Trial

Avocado offers a 100-night sleep trial on all of its mattresses. If at any time during the 100-night period you decide you are not satisfied with the mattress for any reason, Avocado will refund your full purchase price and arrange to have the mattress removed free of charge.

Warranty

Avocado offers a 25-year limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship. Years 1-10 are non-prorated, meaning the owner will not pay any fees to have the mattress repaired or replaced. Durings years 11-25, the owner will pay a pro-rated charge for repair/replacement, as well as any related transportation fees. Full warranty details can be found here.

Avocado Green Mattress Performance

Motion Isolation

Hybrid mattresses often have problems with motion isolation, due to the innerspring support core. Innersprings are notorious for allowing motion to transfer across the bed, thereby disturbing a sleeping partner. The Avocado Green counters this problem with its latex layers, which work well to isolate and trap motion. Customers note that motion transfer isn’t a problem with this bed.

Edge Support

The Avocado uses its innerspring support core to reinforce the bed’s perimeter. Along with the high ILD latex comfort layers, this provides excellent edge support and leads to less sagging over time.

Heat Retention

Latex mattresses can sometimes trap heat, leading to a hot night’s sleep. But the Avocado’s all-natural latex sleeps cooler than synthetic and its innerspring support core allows for air flow and ventilation. Customers do not generally complain of any heat retention.

Off-Gassing

Off-gassing refers to the temporary smells that a mattress releases when it is first removed from its packaging. This smell is usually more pronounced with foam vs. latex and has not been a problem reported with the Avocado.

Support

Support is the important feature that keeps your body in proper alignment while you sleep. The Avocado uses its solid support core and quality latex comfort layers to provide a high level of support. The zoned coil system provides varying levels of targeted support where the body needs it most.

Conforming

The latex used in the Avocado Green doesn’t give the same conforming “hug” that you’ll find in memory foam mattresses. But it does still react and contour to an individual sleeper and provides excellent pressure point relief.

Durability

Because the Avocado Green has only been available for a few years, we don’t have data on its long-term durability. But independent testing indicates that it will hold up well over time and latex in general tends to be quite durable.

Sex

The Avocado’s coil support core results in a more traditional “springy” feel. And latex comfort layers themselves are quite “bouncy.” These materials are optimal for reactivity and bounce, making them ideal for easy movement and sexual activity.
