Avocados

​​​​Westfalia Fruit supplies two types of avocado cultivar to its customers, depending on the season.

GREENSKIN AVOCADOS​

Greenskin Avocados​​
  • ​​​Greenskin avocados include Fuerte, Pinkerton, Edranol and Ryan.
  • When they are harvested, the mature fruit is a green colour and the fruit peel remains green once the avocado is ripe.
  • Greenskin cultivars have thin skins, which can be easily peeled when the fruit is ripe.

DARKSKIN AVOCADOS

Darkskin Avocados​​
  • ​Darkskin avocados include Hass, Carmen®-Hass, Gem® ​and Nature’s Hass.
  • They are also green in colour when mature, at the time of harvest. As they ripen, the fruit’s skin turns dark purple to black, indicating ripeness.
  • The darkskin’s textured, ‘pebbly’ skin is thicker than a greenskin’s and cannot be as easily peeled. The harder skin protects these avocado cultivars from bruising easily, and facilitates scooping of the flesh with a spoon.
  • Darkskins are easy to handle and merchandise, making them the ideal cultivar for ready-to-eat fresh retail fruit.
