Kenyan Avocadoes

Perfect Green

There are two avocado varieties in Kenya; Fuerte and Hass. Kenya is favored by an equatorial climate that allows it to produce avocado through out the year.

Fuerte avocados have a pronounced pear shape. Their skin is thin, glossy, green and slightly textured. Their skin is also relatively loose, making Fuertes easy to peel. They’re available in through out the year. Hass avocados are a smaller variety and are more oval in shape than Fuerte. Their skin is coarsely textured, and they change color with ripening, turning from green to purplish-black. They’re available in Kenya almost all year-round, except for in December and January.
