The Hass variety is typically harvested from January to September, flourishing at altitudes ranging from 1000m to 2000m, with temperatures between 20°C and 24°C. Being reasonably drought-resistant, it can thrive under irrigation in regions with lower rainfall levels.
Fuerte Avocados are typically ready for harvest between January and July, thriving in temperatures of 20°C to 30°C. They generally prosper under similar conditions as the Hass variety but with a narrower harvest window.
The Horticultural Crops Directorate (HCD) of the Agriculture and Food Authority of Kenya (AFA) is officially tasked with announcing the commencement and conclusion of the avocado harvesting season, as well as overseeing the export process by sea or air. We consistently adhere to the directives provided by this authority.
About Hass Avocado
The highly coveted Hass avocados stand out as a prominent export from Kenya. This variety is characterized by a singular large oval seed, forming a drupe. Initially green, the fruit matures into a darker violet hue, almost black, with a rough texture and a yellow interior. Resembling a pear in its oval shape, Hass avocados boast a smooth and buttery consistency, offering a creamy texture.
The avocado tree, known for its minimal maintenance requirements, flourishes with ease and can bear fruit for up to 40 years without extensive intervention.
Recognized for its consistently creamy texture throughout the flesh, Hass avocados from Kenya are particularly well-suited for creating delicious guacamole. Additionally, the low-fat content in the creamy flesh makes it an excellent choice for individuals mindful of their weight. Experience the rich flavors and versatile qualities of Kenyan-grown Hass avocados.
About Fuerte Avocado
In Kenya, Fuerte avocados are distinguished by their easily peelable, smooth, and enduring green skin, which remains so even as the fruit matures. To gauge ripeness, simply assess the fruit’s softness, as it becomes softer with age. This variety holds the second-highest cultivation status in Kenya and is slightly larger than the Hass avocado.
While the Fuerte avocado tree may not match the high yield of the Hass variety, its aesthetics are noteworthy. With a spreading canopy and a stature that doesn’t soar, the Fuerte tree adds a touch of beauty to its productivity.
Fuerte avocados, with their firmer flesh, are uniquely suited for toasts and salads, offering a distinct texture that takes longer to ripen compared to other varieties. Moreover, their resistance to bruising and cracking makes them an excellent choice for shipping, storage, and display in the Kenyan market. Discover the exceptional qualities of Fuerte avocados grown in the scenic landscapes of Kenya.
The Fuerte is also known for its resistance to bruising and cracking, making it perfect for shipping, storage, and display.
