Hybrid: natural latex and innerspring
Medium-firm to firm: 7/10 (6/10 with European pillow-top option)
25-year limited warranty
Eco-friendly hybrid offering good back support
- While the Avocado mattress is on the pricier side, you are investing in all-natural materials and a latex/hybrid mattress which is known to have great durability and one of the longest lifespans.
- Because of the inner coils and latex top support, this mattress is going to provide great responsiveness (adjusting to your movements while you sleep), however it is not going to contour your body the same way a foam mattress will. You do have the option of adding on a European-style pillow-top for added “fluff.” (It’s an extra $400 to add this to a queen size mattress.)
- Nearly all of the materials in the mattress can be recycled.

- Natural wool helps wick moisture away, control temperature and is resistant to dust mites
- Recycled steel support coils help with spinal alignment and balance
- Organic cotton cover is soft and breathable
What Avocado customers have to say
- “It’s been almost a month and we are extremely happy with our Avocado so far! We purchased the standard mattress without the pillow top and it’s the perfect level of firmness for my hubby and I which has proven to be a tough task until now. We tried out two other mattresses from a similar green online mattress company and unfortunately both of them had to be returned due to sagging after less than 6 weeks.” – Kristi K.
- “Recently, bought a Queen with plush topper. I found the mattress a bit too firm for me after sleeping on it for a few nights. I got in touch with Jay (Avocado’s customer service person) and, without any hesitation, he proposed that he sent me another (softer) topper. I received the topper within a few days. I am now very happy with my mattress; I am a back- and side-side sleeper and this mattress gives me great neck and back support. Bottom line: Customer Service was exceptional. If ever I need another mattress, I feel I can order from Avocado, knowing that I will be taken care of.” – Michael L.
- “We have been sleeping on our new mattress with pillow top for a few weeks now. It is firmer than the old (spring) mattress we previously had and it took me about a week or so to get used to that but now we love it. (My husband liked it immediately.) I especially love it that I do not get woken up anymore every time my husband turns around as the movements on his side of the mattress are hardly noticeable on my side.” – Nicolette H.

The finer print
The Avocado ships free and is made to order, which takes about 5-7 business days, plus up to 7 days to ship your mattress.
The Avocado mattress comes compressed, rolled and boxed. You will simply unbox the mattress, unroll it on your foundation (if you’re using one), remove the plastic wrapping and watch it grow. Avocado will also deliver your new mattress, set it up, and remove your old one for a $99 fee. (Note: the King with pillow-top option requires in-home delivery due to its weight.) You can read more about set-up instructions here.
A foundation is not required, but if you choose to use one, a box spring or slatted foundation will work fine. Avocado recommends S. Box Spring which makes a natural wood foundation ($215 for queen).
If you decide the Avocado mattress isn’t right for you within the 100-night trial period, you can arrange a return where they will either recycle the mattress or donate it to a local charity at no cost. You will also get a full refund on your purchase.
The Avocado comes with a 25-year limited warranty.
