Avocados have a round or pear-like shape and have a dark green to a purple brown colour. The soft creamy flesh is dark yellow to light green in colour. Nature's Pride follows all the seasons in different countries all year round so we can supply the most tasteful avocados. Our dedicated growers share information so they are able to supply a consistent quality year round and they are able to develop even further.

Growing and harvesting

Over the years an avocado tree can grow to a height of 20 metres.
However, our growers prune the trees, to keep them at a height
of only 2.5 to 5 metres, to make it easier to harvest the fruits.
Avocado trees start producing fruits in their third year.
As already mentioned, our growers postpone harvesting the
avocados until the fruits have a perfect oil content. In practice,
our avocados are picked on average two weeks later than other
avocados you'll find on the market. The fruits' shape and colour are
also considered during their harvest. The fruits don not all ripen
at the same time, so the trees are inspected and harvested several
times. The harvested avocados are rinsed and cooled to 12 °C in the
packing station, after which they are sorted according to their quality
and size and packed.
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.
