The cultivation process

Depending on the climate in a country and a few other factors, a particular rootstock is chosen to be planted. The rootstock is grafted with the Hass variety after a few months. Eventually it takes an average of a year and a half to two years before the trees are planted in a permanent place. After this it takes two to three years before the first avocados grow on the trees. Our avocado growers wait to pick the fruit until the oil content is perfect. The delicious creamy and nutty flavour is obtained by the oil in the avocado. All kinds of factors influence the development of the avocado. That is the reason that there is a difference, depending on the country, how long the fruit will stay on the trees. When the avocados are mature they are harvested with a pair of scissors. However, the fruit is not ready then to be eaten yet. A ripening process is needed.
The journey of the Avocado
After harvesting, the avocados are taken to a pack house. In the pack house they are weighted and well cleaned. Then they are put on pallets to be transported. The fruit is cooled back again to 5°C. They are shipped to the Netherlands within 7 days, in special containers with controlled temperatures and air values. During transport the avocados do not ripen any further.

The ripening of Avocados
When the fruit arrives at Nature´s Pride 'they get a quality check. Then the ripening supervisors determine the ripening process for every pallet and adjust the humidity and the temperature accordingly. This way the climate of the country of origin is reproduced. All the avocados go through a specific selection process so only the best products receive an EAT ME sticker. You can find more information about the ripening process here.
