  • Description: The Hass avocado is dark green-colored with a bumpy skin.
  • Fruit Size: Small to medium (140 – 350g) – large fruit an exception.
  • Season:May until September in Limpopo South Africa.
  • Skin: Thick, green, pebbly skin changes colour to purple/black when ripe/ready to eat. Skin does not yield to pressure easily – once soft or shriveled, fruit is overripe.
  • Storage:Excellent shelf life with very few post harvest problems. Store at +5 degrees C – NOT COLDER.
  • Taste: Rich and nutty, as opposed to the stringy/watery “Natal” seedling variety.

  • Variety Description: If you like flavourful avocados, you will love the Fuerte avocado! Rarely found in stores. Fuertes look like elongated pears, and the skin is a beautiful grass-green with some darker speckles mixed in. The fruit itself is pale yellow with a smooth, creamy texture. Fuertes are less oily that other avocados, but the flavour is very rich and nutty. Fuerte avocados were once the top variety, but were displaced in the 1930’s by the newer Hass variety. Hass has a thicker, bumpy skin that can be rolled and handled without as much risk to damage. If you are a person who really loves avocados, you owe it to yourself to try the Fuertes!
  • Fruit Size: Medium sized (140 - 400g)
