The Avocado Mattress is a welcome addition to the natural mattress marketplace. It looks and feels great but also is affordable and eco-friendly. With natural latex, JOMA wool, organic cotton and up to 1,330 support coils and a price of $1,399 for a queen it’s a great buy. It’s nice to see a natural mattress enter the online mattress space at such a competitive price.

Overview of the Avocado Mattress

Here’s a quick video that explains the main features of this mattress. Overall its a really good value considering all the materials you get.

Construction of the Avocado Bed

Below are the construction details as listed on the Avocado website.

Top Layer

The top layer consists of hand-tufted Joma wool rosettes on top of an organic cotton cover. This tufting process makes the bed look amazing but also is used because you don’t need to use a glue to hold the pieces of the mattress together.

Middle layers

The pillow top consists of a 2-inch latex layer followed by another 2 inches of latex below that for a total of 4 inches of dunlop latex.

Base Layer

The base of the mattress is made of individual 16 gauge pocket coils split into 3 zones so that you get proper support where you need it.

Avocado Bed Certifications

According to the Avocado Sleep website, Every Avocado mattress and pillow is GREENGUARD Gold Certified by UL Environment. It means they’re scientifically tested to meet some of the world’s most rigorous emissions standards for chemical exposure and pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde and phthalates. Few mattresses and pillows qualify for this gold standard. For a deeper dive into indoor air quality, pollutants and your family’s health, visit our

The latex used is 100% natural. I didn’t find any mention of GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) though.

The wool is pure JOMA wool sourced from New Zealand

The coils also have a sustainable story in that they are made with recycled steel.

The cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.

Avocado Bed With or Without Pillowtop?

If you’re trying to decide between the Avocado with or without the pillow top. Here’s a detailed explanation from Avocado about the differences between the two:

On our standard Avocado mattress, we use two seamless layers of Dunlop latex: 2 inches in the comfort layer (D75 / 24-28 ILD, soft); and a denser 1-inch layer (D95, firm) as a core base component under the innerspring support coil unit.

On the Avocado Mattress with the optional Pillow-Top, we use three seamless layers of Dunlop latex — 2 inches in the Euro-top layer (D75 / 24-28 ILD, soft), 2 more inches in the comfort layer (D75 / 24-28 ILD, soft), and a denser 1-inch layer (D95 / 36-38 ILD, firm) as a core base component. No blended or synthetic latex is used, and there are no seams to break down over time or chemical adhesives.

The softer natural latex is rated D75 / 24-28 ILD; while our firmer latex is rated D95 / 36-38 ILD.

My Avocado Mattress Findings

Because this mattress is made with dunlop latex, it will have a firmer feel to it. However because it is tufted, you get more of a true pillow top feel. With many latex mattresses you get a flat feel with more or less sink depending on what type of latex is used. The tufting makes a significant difference here.

Here’s a video illustrating bounce on the Avocado mattress. It has quite a bit of bounce:

Another plus for this mattress is the edge support. Usually, all latex mattresses sink a little at the edge but because this mattress has a coil system as well, you get the benefit of added edge support so that you can use all of the mattress and sleep right up to the edge without feeling like you will fall off.

Aside from the hand tufting, this mattress also has stitched handles that make it easy to rotate or transport.

Since the Avocado is made with latex and quality springs. According to Avocado, the weight limit is  350 lbs. per person, or 700 lbs. in total.

Another common question is whether or not the Avocado Bed is Vegan. Unfortunately, because they use a wool fire barrier it cannot be considered a Vegan Mattress.

The Avocado Bed Warranty

You can find detailed information on the Avocado Mattress on their website here. Avocado offers a 25-year warranty. Here are some of the high-level details of the warranty.

YEARS 1-10: FULL COVERAGE — NON-PRORATED

During the first ten (10) years of the Limited Warranty, Avocado Mattress will not charge purchaser to repair or replace purchaser’s mattress if it qualifies under the Limited Warranty. This period is non-prorated which means that we don’t charge you a percentage of the repair costs or replacement product based on the amount of time you slept on the mattress prior to noticing a defect.

YEARS 11-25: LIMITED COVERAGE — PRORATED

During years 11-25 of this 25-Year Limited Warranty Avocado Mattress will, at its option, replace the mattress at a prorated charge to the purchaser plus transportation and/or shipping charges. The prorated replacement charged will be dependent on the year that the mattress is replaced.

My Avocado Mattress Recommendation

If you’re in the market for an all natural mattress, the Avocado should be near to the top of your list. They have done a phenomenal job of blending traditional coils and tufting techniques along with natural latex, wool and organic cotton. Aside from the natural benefits this provides, it feels like a high quality mattress. Latex is a very durable material and so you won’t have issues with depressions over time.

An emerging trend with natural mattresses is a free trial period. Avocado has a 100 night free trial period where if you don’t like it for whatever reason you can return it for a full refund. This really tips the scales because there are still many natural mattresses that don’t offer a free trial period and so it can be a gamble when buying online without trying first. Avocado takes away the anxiety of purchasing natural mattresses online.

Many people ask, does the Avocado Mattress work on an adjustable base? Yes, it does! Contrary to other reports, this mattreess will work with an adjustable base.

98 thoughts on “Avocado Mattress Review | A Green Mattress”

  1. Is your softness rating equivalent to a mattress firmness rating? I see most of those are a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the firmest. Avocado’s website says they rate their mattress a 6, but the scale is the opposite — 1 is firm as a board and 10 is soft as a cloud. I would expect that to translate to a 4 on your scale?

    Also, they tell me their spring gauge is 17 in the middle zone of the bed, which surprised me, as I thought the middle would offer more support.

    Any thoughts?

    1. This mattress skews firmer than most mattresses I have reviewed. The Latex layer is the primary reason for this. I found it to be firmer than the Natural Escape from My Green Mattress

    1. I’m not sure. I weigh around 200 lbs. and it supports me just fine. I think it could easily support more than that though. The top layer is latex which is very resilient and durable.

  2. I sleep on both stomach and side. 200 lbs. Would this bed last longer/be any better if purchased without optional pillow top? (could purchase something separately and replace if needed) How would you compare this to WinkBed?

    1. The Avocado is slightly firmer than the Winkbed. The pillow top on the Avocado is 3 inches of latex which is a very durable and resilient material. I would expect the spring system to break down faster than the pillow top so you should be just fine getting the pillow top.

  3. Bought the Avocado brand because they are authentic and the customer service was first class. This article was helpful in helping me make the right choice for me. Thank you.

  4. I just bought the Natural Escape based on your recommendations. The Avocado seemed a little too pricy and too firm for me. This will be my eighth mattress in a little over a year. I’ve tried the Brooklyn Bedding soft and medium. The Ghost Bed. The Saatva bed soft. The Nest Alexander soft and medium. And finally the Nest Hybrid which seems too soft. I hope this is the one. I am out of town sleeping on a medium firm spring mattress that is much more comfortable than all the mattresses I have tried. I am crossing my fingers because if the Natural Escape mattress doesn’t work than I don’t know what I’ll be sleeping on. Maybe the ground.

    1. Hi Benny,

      I’m curious to know what you think of the Avocado mattress as I am in a similar situation with less than stellar mattress experiences this past year. I currently have the Nest bed (Smarthouse Cool) and going to return it as it’s caused lower back pain from my hips sinking in too much (I get relief when I sleep on other beds), and I previously had the Loom & Leaf Luxury Firm. I’ve come to realize I don’t like memory foam as a result of the heat despite what is advertised, along with the sinkage. I am now considering innersprings with latex and looking at the Brentwood Home line as well as others but just came across this bed and wondering what you think of it?

    2. Hi,
      Can you give an update on the Natural Escape mattress? I’m thinking of getting one as the all Dunlop mattress I have now is both painful unsupportive.

      Thanks

    1. The tufting on the Avocado really gives it a different feel. I would say it is about the same firmness as the soft side of the Zen haven but you wil sink into it a little more.

  5. Just found Avocado Green site. Looks good but firmness levels are giving me pause. We have been sleeping on a Room and Board encased foam firm now wanting to replace for myself, a side and stomach sleeper, and husband who is a side and back sleeper. We are both trim and of average/ low average weight. Any thoughts on which firmness level to consider?

    1. Latex will feel firmer than memory foam so going with the non-pillow top version of the Avocado should be just right.

    I currently have the Alpine Natural Mattress and am looking for something which still has support but is a little softer on top. Do you think that I would find this in the Avocado mattress? Should I get the pillowtop cover or look for a mattress cover that goes with it? Thanks!

  7. I’m torn between the Avocado and the Saatva plush. I’m a side sleeper and get frequent numb arms. I noticed in a comment that someone tried the Saavta and returned it. What’s your opinion comparing the two mattresses? I like how natural the Avocado is but am concerned about sleep comfort as I also am regarding the Saavta.

    1. The Avocado is much more natural than the Saatva. The Avocado uses natural latex for cushion and wool as a fire barrier. However, the Avocado will feel firmer than the Saatva.

  8. I am a 245# side sleeper. Contemplating Avocado because it is latex and coil hybrid. From my research it’s been suggested that heavier side sleepers should select medium-firm or firm to support body weight. The idea of adding pillow top sounds appealing and luxurious, but I’m concerned it may be too soft for me. What do you think? Also, any thoughts on how Avocado compares with Mirador from Brentwood Home (another latex and coil hybrid). Thanks!

    1. I think you would be just fine with the pillow top. Since it is latex you won’t sink in as much as if it were foam. The Mirador is going to feel slightly softer than the Avocado.

    1. I haven’t slept on the Plush Beds Luxury Bliss mattress so can’t speak directly to feel but one distinction is that the Avocado is hand tufted which helps keep the layers in place. The Avocado also has an organic cotton cover not sure about PlushBeds. Also the Avocado seems to have a better trial. I can only find this model on Amazon which has a standard 30 day trial.

  9. I have tried many beds, including sleep number where I am about a 30. Looking for a very soft, pillowtop which has some support. What do you recommend ? Have gone through 3 mattresses this year, all too firm. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    hi do you think this mattress will be compatible with an adjustable base over time? I mean given the coils. Do they get disfigured or out of wack with constant bending and unbending of the mattress?

  11. I’m trying to decide between zenhaven and avocado. The price difference won’t be deciding point. I want supportive and firm, but without pressure points. And a cool sleep–I can’t wait to get rid of my tempurpedic! To me, the quandary is between the avocado with coils vs. the zenhaven that is all latex foam, and is reversible. Trial periods are comparable. Both “green” and natural. Your thoughts?

    1. I would go with the Avocado. I found the Avodaco to be more supportive in my lower baack than the Zen Haven.

    Have been sleeping on an old Sterns and Foster coil mattress/box spring for way too long. Went to box store who analyzed our sleep needs and determined that we would both enjoy a softer memory foam; we actually much preferred a Tempur-pedic Flex Supreme Hybrid to anything else in the store. Based on what we seem to prefer and our desire for something as natural (untreated) as reasonable we are deciding between Avocado and the Brentwood Home Oceano or Mirador.
    Any advice on which to try first? We are both back and side sleepers (spouse is 200 lbs and I’m 155 lbs).

  13. Hi 🙂 I am interested in a natural mattress and so far have only come across the avocado and my green mattress. I have a severe back problems and went from a too soft mattress to a too hard mattress. I am a back sleeper due to the mattress being too hard would like to be able to sleep on my side. Which mattress would you recommend? I currently have a wool topper on my mattress and even that feels too firm depending on the days and I find my muscles all right. Thanks so much 🙂

    I am looking to buy a number of new mattresses for a vacation home. I was pretty sold on the Avocado, as I am looking for a green mattress. However, I have read your multiple recommendations for the Oceana. As a vacation home, there will be different style and weight sleepers in the queen beds over time.

    I am buying a King for the Master Bedroom. I am 5’9″, 145 lbs, and currently sleep on my back and side.

    I appreciate your site and find the info very helpful. Thank you.

    1. The Avocado will be firmer than the Oceano so if you like a firmer mattress the Avocado is the way to go. Both offer great support. The Avocado uses latex and springs while the Oceano is memory foam and springs. I found the Oceano to offer a little more pressure relief due to the fact they use foam.

    Ben, we’re you warm/hot when sleeping on the Avocado?

    P.S. My super picky sister recently bought a mattress through you and loves it!

    1. I didn’t sleep hot on it. If anything I think it sleeps cooler than most foam mattresses because the latex has holes throughout which helps it breathe. Additionally, the natural wool fire barrier also helps regulate temperature.

  16. Hi, I recently purchased the mid range Intellibed. It is too firm and killing my back! In your opinion will the Avocado with the pillow top be cushy enough or would you go Oceano? Or a different mattress altogether?
    Thanks!

  17. Thanks for your great reviews. I am trying to decide between the Nest Hybrid Latex Medium and the Avocado Pillow top. I like that luxury Plush mattress feel, but prefer to latex to memory foam. Which would you recommend?

  18. Hi – would the Avocado be suitable with our bed’s slats? there’s about 3/4″ – 1″ space between each slat and the next. Thanks!

  19. Wow I’m so thankful that I found your site. Thank you for the reviews and the feedback that you provide. I have a similar question to a few above. Currently I sleep on a traditional Japanese futon mattress. I have scoliosis and low back issues and thought that this sleeping style might help me gain some alignment and stability. However, it has zero give for my pressure points and is very hard on my hips and shoulders. I sleep on my back, my side and my stomach on occasion. Because I really appreciate the eco-friendly options I like the My Green, and the Avocado. However, I thought that the Saatva mattress might be an option as well. Your thoughts? Thank you!

    1. I think the Avocado with the Pillow Top would be an excellent choice. The My Green Mattress will feel a bit softer though and the plush version of the Cedar by Brentwood home would feel softer than that. The Saatva is not a natural mattress.

    2. I slept on a traditional Japanese futon and had the same issue. I added a feather bead and it made it the most wonderful sleep ever. Bed Bath and Beyond had a nice one.

  20. Appreciate the reviews. I’m between the My Green Mattress Natural Escape and the Avocado (without pillow top) for my 4 year sons first twin bed. It looks like the Natural Escape boast a thicker latex top layer and a slightly softer feel. Any thoughts or recommendations between the two?

  21. Hi there, I am purchasing a mattress for my 20 year old daughter. She is about 5’3″ 115 lbs. She absolutely loved the purple mattress but I wanted something healthier for her. She doesn’t like a sinking in feel and is asking for firm, which the purple did just right it seems. Would you go with the standard or the pillow top?
    Thank you!

    1. Both are a really good choice. The biggest differences are of course price and the Cedar uses natural materials while the Purple is primarily a foam mattress with the Polymer grid. The Cedar will hug you more while you sort of rest on top of the Purple. In terms of sleeping cool the Purple will sleep cooler.

  22. Hey Ben – We are in the market for a very green, cool-sleeping mattress. Tend to like a firmer sleep and my husband will need something with extra support. The Avocado is a top contender. Is there a mattress you might suggest that will compete with the Avocado for the factors I describe? Or is the Avocado a pretty solid choice?

    Do you think the pillow-top will make it too hot to sleep on or does it breathe well?

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your website. I purchased a Sealy bed and the smell is unbearable. I plan to return it and purchase a greener bed. My husband is interested in loom and leaf but I came across avocado tonight. I am a side sleeper, he is a stomach sleeper that gets hot. I have asthma and am sensitive to odors. What bed would you recommend to us? Ideally odor free, not hot, and can relieve pressure points.

  24. I have heard some comments about the Avocado mattress having some annoying points where the wool rosettes sit on top. Some reviews note that this could be irritating to people who are sensitive to sensory stimuli. Have you experienced this?

    1. I have heard that complaint as well however I didn’t personally notice it. I use a mattress protector below the sheets which provides another layer and smooths things out a bit more.

  25. how does the avocado compare with the winkbed in terms of firmness and the floating effect you get with springs? Does the Avocado ship rolled? Does the Winkbed ship rolled?

    1. The Avocado ships rolled. The Winkbed does not. Both have springs. They are about the same in terms of firmness as well with the luxury firm Winkbed being about the same firmness as the pillow top version of the Avocado.

    I just received the Avocado mattress w/out the pillow top. Okay, this is my 3rd mattress (1st – commercial brand, 2nd Airweave -liked the breathability, but, too firm). I saw all the glowing reviews about Avocado being firm and breathable. I think because of how the weave is on the organic cotton top layer (soft flannel like) it is creating a lot of heat. Not very breathable. I thought I was making an educated good choice, but, I am a weaver (know my textiles)…I should of known better. Also, there is an output of a distinct cotton smell and it is the fibers…it is making my throat scratchy. Just because it’s organic doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the endall. The structure of the fabric does make a difference hopefully that will dissipate. Being menopausal…sleeping cool is so important. I haven’t seen any reviews stating this….so, here it is…be forewarned.

  27. What do you think of the Avocado mattress directly on a wood floor that has radiant heating under the floor boards? Thanks!

  28. We are looking into a new mattress, currently sleeping on an old (10-12 yrs) traditional mattress that’s giving me shoulder/hip pain (husband and I are both side sleepers). He’s concerned about sleeping comfort, I’m also concerned about getting a natural mattress. Would avocado + pillow top still be too firm for us side sleepers? (5’4”, 130; 6’1”, 190)

    I found this mattress (Queen w/ pillow-top) to be the most firm mattress I’ve ever experienced, anywhere I’ve ever slept. Any part of my body that was touching the mattress, whether lying on my back or side, started to become numb after a few minutes. I recently was sleeping on a spring mattress w/ a 2 inch foam top (w/ Zinus box foundation). I’ve had the Avocado for 2 nights now, and and have found it hard to fall asleep, and once asleep, would frequently awake in various positions, which I can only assume to be my body’s way of relieving pressure. I’ve never felt this type of all-over pressure/numbing anywhere I’ve slept (including sleeping bags on floors or camping). I weigh about 185-190lbs and am fairly fit. I’m going to give it a little more time, but this is not pleasant at all, so far.
    I really love the eco-friendly measures, and healthful nature of the company though.

    I’ve had the Avocado Queen w/ pillow top for a week now, and I haven’t had a solid night’s sleep yet. I find it way to firm for this side sleeper. I’m a decently fit person, and weigh around 185-190lbs. I’m waking throughout the night relieving arm numbness, shoulder soreness, as well as ribs, hip, and legs. I would rate it a 9 for firmness. I will be returning it, and think I’ll be going for an all-latex layered mattress.

  33. I am a side sleeper, and experience lower back problems. Unfortunately, I also notice shoulder pain with some mattresses. We’re currently in the trial period with the Brentwood Home Cedar mattress, but will likely return it (too soft).

    Would you suggest the Avocado in my case, and if so, the pillow top version, or not?

  34. Hi – I’m trying to decide between the Avocado with pillowtop, Plushbed botanical bliss or luxury bliss, and brentwood home cedar or oceano.

    I’m looking for latex hybrid or maybe 100% latex. I’m a stomach and side sleeper and my husband is a back sleeper. We have a super plush pillow top now that got indentations really quick and my lower back always hurts. I’m looking for something more medium, but still soft and plush, but not super plush, and really want something that will last and not get indentations. At first I really liked the Brentwood oceano, but now am leaning towards brentwood cedar or Avocado or Plushbeds. I have had the chance to lay on the avocado w/ pillow top and don’t find it too firm, but would be open to slightly softer — not too much though, especially given I sleep primarily on my stomach.

    Any recommendations of the 3 based on all the notes above?

  35. Hi, have you tried the current version of the Nest Alexander Latex Hybrid (firm or medium)? If so, how does that compare to the Avocado? Would the Avocado be firmer than the firm version of the Nest Latex Hybrid? Thanks for your insight.

  36. Hi,
    Thank you so much for your organized and helpful reviews! You are making this daunting process much easier and more efficient. How would you rate the Avocado in terms of temperature. I’m looking for a hybrid natural/organic mattress that has a firm feel but also doesn’t get too hot as my husband tends to sleep hot. I’m considering Avocado and Cedar. Thank you!

  37. THank you so much for your reviews — your site has been so helpful to me in this daunting process.
    Considering an avocado mattress as I want an organic hybrid that feels firm. 2 questions:
    – How is it on temperature (my husband tends to sleep hot).
    – Have you ever noticed the buttons or heard of people feeling them or being bothered? I read that in one review and not sure how much to take that into consideration.
    Thank you for any advice!
    Laura

    1. The Avocado is pretty temperature neutral since the latex has holes that are breathable and the cover is made of cotton. I have heard other people noticing the buttons on the tufting but that can easily be addressed with a mattress pad. I personally don’t notice it.

  38. Hello,
    Great website!

    I recently tried the my green mattress pure echo. It was way too firm. I put a soft mattress topper on it from Sleep On Latex. It felt great when I laid down, but by 2 am it had a weird super soft feeling laid over a hard surface. My wife thought the same thing and she complained of back pain. We then tried the my green mattress natural escape. My wife likes it much better than I do, but after a few weeks it is getting more comfortable. I have really wanted to try the Avocado and got a great deal so I ordered one. However, I came across to your site after I ordered and now I’m wondering how much I’ll like it (seems more firm than natural escape). I’m 5’11” 155 and wife is 5’4″ 115.

    Thoughts? Any other suggestions. It looks like you really like the Brentwood. Also, a mattress could not be “green” enough for my wife. The more certifications (legit ones of course) the better.

    Thanks.

  39. Hi, You seem to have the best unbiased website that I have seen. I wish I could fly to MN to try your beds in the showroom. I currently have a Savvy Rest with 3″ firm dunlop,3″ med dunlop and #’ soft latex on top. I have had terrible back pain even though I have adjusted the layers.It was a $3,000 bed so want to make the right choice this time. I am trying to decide between an Avocado Green or a Saatva. I slept on a friends Saatva and was pretty comfortable but I like the feel of the latex on top and the mostly organic materials in the Avocado. I also tried a Diamond Ethos with a latex top which felt great but it is not organic at all either. I have a adjustable bed so I like the idea of the 11″ Saatva.I am only 5″2 and 115, I am considering trying the Avocado without the pillow top and then adding the separate pillow top if it is too firm. How does the Avocado Pillowtop compare with the Saatva in firmness.? Thank You!

    1. The Avocado is firmer than the Saatva Luxury firm, even with the Pillow top. If you want to get a similar firmness to the Saatva but with natural materials, I would checkout the Brentwood Home Cedar mattress.

  40. I’m somewhat allergic or sensitive to wool. You say the cover is organic cotton, so I assume all the wool is below that. And of course I would have sheets, but I’m a little worried about the wool and respiratory reactions. Guess only way to know is to try.

  41. Hey there!
    I’m currently stuck between the Avocado and the Happsy.
    I prefer a firmer mattress, husband I are both side/stomach sleepers of average weight.
    In terms of overall quality and comfort which do you recommend?
    Thanks!

    Avocado is on my shortlist and wondered if you had any advice. I’m 5’4″ and 200lbs, curvy (hips), and mostly a side sleeper.

    I currently have the Clarity from The Natural Mattress Store in San Francisco, with the “medium-soft” talalay latex layer and “regular” springs (they have a model with firmer springs too). I find the plush layer to be good as a side sleeper, but I think I need stronger springs to provide better support. I’m sore when I wake up.

    I like beds that envelope you but only on the surface, not where you sink into a hole.

    Do you think the Avocado would be too firm? Between Brentwood Cedar, MyGreenMattress Natural Escape and (if you’ve tried it) the PlushBeds latex/springs combo, which would you recommend?

    Any others I should consider, even if they are slightly more expensive? My budget is flexible for quality, but it’s not infinite. I don’t know if it helps but if I were rich, the Vispring Regal Superb would be the ideal mattress for me :). I got to sleep on one for a week and it was perfect.
