Hass avocados are in season for the next few weeks from the Capricorn district in Limpopo. Harvesting bulk for exports we always ensure the Garden Route's share of first class avocados.
The Hass avocado is one of the most delicious varieties of avocado around the world, with a rich creamy flesh and superior taste.
Unlike other avocados, which have smooth green skin, the Hass avocado fruit has dark green bumpy skin that darkens as it ripens, eventually reaching a very dark shade that is almost black. Like all avocados, Hass avocados ripen only once they are picked from the tree and they can be left on the tree for several months after the fruit has matured.
When it comes to nutritional content, Hass avocados are higher in fat than other varieties, which gives them a richer taste and smoother, creamier texture. 80% of avocados consumed in the world are Hass avocados, meaning all other varieties make up only a small proportion of the remaining 20%.
