Designed and developed with the most innovative features in mind, and the ability support sleepers of any position, the Avocado Green, according to our data, appears to have successfully met these objectives.
The eco-luxury mattress is made up of 100% natural Dunlop latex rubber foam, which is crafted from sustainably harvested sources.
It is a high performance mattress offering temperature control, durability, and resilience that far exceeds blended, synthetic, or petroleum-based polyurethane foams.
2. How is it Layered?
The layers are as follows:
- Top Layer: It is a hand tufted layer of Joma wool, which is on top of an organic cotton cover. The tufting process makes the mattress look great, but it is also used because you don’t need to use a glue to hold the mattress pieces together. This layer is 2″ and designed to provide responsiveness to the mattress.
- Middle Layer: It is 1” of all natural Dunlop latex, with the middle layer of the Pillow Top model. This layer helps to provide good level of support to the users.
- Base Layer: It is constructed with individual 16 gauge pocket coils that presents with a 3 zone split design that provides appropriate support where you need it most.
3. How is the Cover?
This durable, soft, and natural textile is sourced from the United States, and is button tufted by hand, along with wool yarn rosettes that secure the internal mattress layers and cotton ticking firmly in place without the use of chemicals.
In addition to this, they use hand-stitched tape edges and heavy duty draped handles.
4. How Firm is the Avocado Green Mattress?
The Avocado Green offers a nice medium firmness.
It provides good support from its pocketed coil foundation layer, along with the latex top layer that provides more of a feeling of “floating” on top of the bed, compared to “sinking down in it” just like memory foam.
There is a pretty large degree of bounce to the mattress, from the combination of latex and innerspring coils used in the mattress construction.
The mattress uses two different latex layers, a firm transition layer, and a soft comfort layer which helps to make the bed more comfortable when combined with the luxurious wool cover and cotton.
In terms of support, it differs with many other latex mattresses- in that it does provide “enough” give and contour, when sleeping on your side. Usually latex mattresses are much firmer, and are too comfortable for side sleeping as well.
5. Does it Remain Cool or Become Hot?
The mattress breathes well, thus making sure you do not sleep hot.
With its 100% natural Dunlop Latex, the aeration in the latex easily allows heat to escape.
Furthermore, Latex is not like memory foam where the mattress tends to hug your body, and thus it is more susceptible to heat retention.
Latex helps keep you on top of the mattress, which is better for cooling as well.
Overall, the mattress sleeps cool for most users, however, if you are an extremely hot sleeper, you may experience some heat retention at times.
6. Does it Smell Like Chemicals?
The mattress gets high marks in this category for not having a noticeable smell while opening the box.
Our research revealed that the Avocado fared very well in this category with only about 3% of users reporting any issues with odor or off gassing.
In addition to this, those expressing concern indicated that in humid climates primarily, a slight natural odor was detected when first opening your new Avocado mattress.
However, this very slight odor, according to consumer comments, dissipates very quickly.
7. Will I Feel the Partner Moving?
No, you may not actually feel the partner moving! The mattress absorbs motion easily, thereby causing little to no disruption by a partner’s movements.
The coil and latex construction does a good job of providing the pushback and support that alleviates sinkage.
Though latex does not typically perform quite as well in this category as memory foam, the Avocado appears to be the exception to this rule.
In addition to this, edge support of the mattress is good, and when sleeping near its edge, you will certainly not experience “rolling off” of the bed which is commonly a problem with beds with inadequate edge support.
8. Do I Need a Foundation or Boxspring for the Avocado Green?
The mattress will work perfectly well on any type of solid surface, as well as any adjustable base.
In addition to this, these specialized foundations require some simple at-home assembly.
9. How Durable is it?
The Avocado Green is manufactured right here in the USA.
The mattress fares well in this category as it uses Dunlop latex, which is one of the most durable materials in the industry.
The base support layer, a truly advanced support system at that, is designed with individually wrapped coils that are constructed in three separate split zones, thereby affording sleepers support where they tend to need it most.
All of our research indicated that the Avocado presents with long term durability, delivers a more consistent sleeping surface, and is 25% more durable than foam mattresses.
10. Is it Easy to Clean and Maintain?
Because of its internal support coil system with its pocketed innerspring, the Avocado requires no flipping, but it is highly recommended that you rotate your new mattress once per month during the first 6 months of ownership, and thereafter rotate it once about every 3-6 months.
This rotation schedule will ensure continued overall performance.
In addition to this, rotating your mattress will prevent body impressions that can otherwise be caused by the slight compression’s of the natural latex, natural wool, and organic cotton that are present when you initially start enjoying your new mattress.
Furthermore, rotating your mattress can surely prevent it from wearing and sagging excessively over time.
11. How Long is the Warranty?
The Avocado Green is covered by a 25 year limited warranty. This warranty is specific to any manufacturer’s defects or any proven defects in workmanship.
During the first 10 years, the company will replace or repair a defective bed, however, during the next 11 to 25 years, the company will replace it at a prorated charge to the buyer.
Our research has revealed that users find this warranty to be quite decent in comparison to other hybrid and memory foam mattresses.
12. Is There a Comfort Guarantee?
The reason for zoning is to easily accommodate the three areas of the body which can actually prove the most arduous to accommodate.
This will include the pelvic area where you usually carry the most weight- the shoulder area which is slender, and the lumbar area which is usually thinner and will sink in more easily because of the smaller surface area.
The zoning of the mattress can make it a perfect bed for anyone with extreme profiles or body weights.
Thus, the mattress is firmer in the center to support the lumbar and pelvis, and softer at the bottom and top for your shoulders and hips.
This is a feature that certainly makes the bed stand out from the other mattresses.
In addition to this, the mattress has a 100 night free trial period where if you don’t really like it for whatever reason you can return it for a full refund.
13. Does it Ship in a Box?
Yes, it is shipped in a box!
Free standard delivery is offered to locations within the 50 U.S. states, and standard delivery involves the mattress being compressed into a box and delivered to your doorstep.
When you receive it, you need to remove the mattress from the box and packaging, and it then decompresses and expands to reach its full size. Please be aware that the King model is not available for standard delivery.
Avocado also offers white-glove delivery for $99. This includes setup of the new mattress and removal of your old mattress set if you do not need it anymore.
After ordering, it typically takes 5 days to build the mattress, and then it takes another 1-2 weeks for the mattress to be delivered.
14. What is Avocado Green’s Price?
Avocado offers 6 different sizes that fall between the price category- $899 to $1,599.
- Twin mattress $959
- Twin XL $999
- Full/Double $1,199
- Queen $1,399

Also, currently there is a $100 discount coupon, or a choice of two free pillows, available on its official website when purchasing your Avocado Green mattress.
15. Is this the Mattress for me?
This mattress is for you are seeking an organic/all natural mattress as the Avocado Green is a clean and healthy choice, and one of the best crafted natural mattresses on the market.
It is one of the top picks if you are a heavier sleeper. It is thick and constructed like a tank. In addition to this, latex is one of the most flexible foams that will last for a long time.
It is a good option if you want a good value for money. Sometimes the organic and natural mattresses get really pricey, and the Avocado Green is economically priced for the quality of materials that it uses.
In addition to this, it is suitable for people who sleep in multiple positions, thereby offering a good medium feel along with good body conformance. It does not matter if you sleep on your side, stomach, or back, this mattress will conform to your body very well.
It offers three zoned construction layout, that supports pelvic, lumbar, and shoulder areas, thereby alleviating excess aches and pains that usually occur when sleeping in the wrong position or tossing and turning all night.
This feature surely sets the Avocado apart from its competitors, and the ideal balance between tufting techniques and Dunlop natural latex, the Joma wool, and the 100% organic cotton have earned this mattress a good rating from the users, according to our research.
An emerging trend with all natural mattresses is a free trial period, and Avocado Green has a 100 night free trial period, wherein, if you don’t like it for whatever reason you can return it for a full refund.
This really tips the scales as there are still a plethora of natural mattresses that don’t offer a free trial period, and so it can be a gamble when purchasing online without trying first.
Avocado takes away the apprehensions of purchasing natural mattresses online.
