What we offer is delicious Hass and Fuerte avocados!

Hass avocado

The Hass avocado, originating from Southern California (Persea americana) is characterized by its dark green–colored, bumpy skin. 

Typically weighing between 150 to 250 grams, when ripe the Hass avocado’s skin turns a dark purplish-black and gives under a gentle press of the thumb. High in oil content the Hass avocado is an excellent source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids – the healthy type designed to keep your heart healthy!

Fuerte avocado

eaning “strong” in Spanish, this variety has Mexican/Guatemalan origins and are slightly larger and more elongated than their Hass cousins and characterized by its deep emerald color and smooth, thinner skin.  

Weighing between 200-300grams on average, Fuertes are emerald green in color with a creamy taste and similar oil content to the Hass variety. And just like its Hass cousin, the Fuerte offers the same potent line up of vitamins and minerals and heart health omega-3 fatty acids.
