As hass avocado prices in Kenya continue to impress, Packhouse buying prices have also been handsome in the last 4 weeks of January 2023. According to Avocado Society of Kenya, the end of January has seen huge buying prices by Packhouses on hass avocados in Kenya as compared to fuerte. Hass avocados are most in demand in the export market because of their superior ripening characteristics. Trade prices for Hass avocado shift mostly depending on the available volume.

Why are Hass Avocados so Popular?

In the late 1920s, the industry standard for avocados was set by the Fuerte variety. Here are some factors that made the Hass variety more popular in Kenya compared to the Fuerte:

  1. Hass trees have a much higher fruit yield
  2. Hass trees can produce fruit all year long. Hass has the longest harvest season of any avocado variety around. The main harvest season of Hass avocado in Kenya is from May to October.
  3. Hass avocado contains higher oil levels which give it a better taste
  4. Hass avocado has a longer shelf-life
  5. Hass trees are vigorous growers and easy to propagate
  6. Hass trees mature and yield fruit faster. Hass trees start bearing fruit after three to four years while Fuerte trees start after six years.
  7. Hass trees alternate their production of fruit every other year. This means they give a bountiful harvest one year and recover the next year with a light harvest. This is unlike Fuerte trees which struggle with over production every year.
  8. Hass trees limit their yield by moderating the duration of blooming and the amount of blooming flowers. But the Fuerte trees have longer blooms and too many blooming flowers leading to over bearing.
