Our avocados nurtured in Colombia benefit from the ideal South American climate which makes the nutrient rich fruits available all year round.
Arguably the most popular variety in the world due to the creamy and consistent taste and large size, Hass avocados also have a shorter ripening time than other varieties. The pebbled and thick skin houses a soft and velvety textured fruit when fully ripe that adds a nutritious element to any mealtime.
Our perfect Colombian climate
Colombia provides the perfect climate to grow our avocado due to the year round warm temperatures and moderate humidity. The nutrient rich soil nestled in the foothills of the mountains, benefits from good drainage and means the trees also have access to unobstructed sunlight throughout the day.
Our Colombian avocados are naturally pollinated by honey-bees that are kept in colonies by our fruit during the flowering season.
Healthy and nutritious fruit
Avocados are a fantastic source of vitamin E, iron, potassium and monounsaturated fat and therefore provide many important antioxidants, helping to prevent free-radicals causing cell damage.
Eating just half an avocado provides the body with one of the NHS’s recommended five-a-day and also acts as a great source of B vitamins, folate and fibre; all of which are important to the function of a healthy body.
Hass and Greenskin avocado
Alongside our popular Hass avocado, we also grow Fuerte, Pinkerton, Reed, Bacon and Ryan varieties.
