Growing and harvesting

The root stock is selected depending on the climate of the country and a number of other conditions. After several months, the root stock is grafted with the Hass variety. Finally, it takes one and a half to two years on average before the trees can be planted in a particular place. Natural soil enrichment is used to grow organic avocados. It takes about two years before the first avocado can be harvested. Natural predators and natural pesticides are used for crop protection during cultivation. Our avocado growers wait to harvest the fruit until the oil content of the organic avocados is perfect. The oil in organic avocados accounts for the delicious creamy and nutty flavour. All kinds of conditions affect the development of organic avocados. Therefore, it varies per country how long the fruit can stay on the trees. Samples are taken to see if the avocado is mature enough to be harvested. They check the oil content and the dry matter value. After a positive test the fruit is harvested by hand. However, the organic avocado is not yet ready to be eaten. It still needs a ripening process.
The journey of organic avocado
After harvesting, the organic avocados are taken to the packhouse. In the warehouse, the fruit is weighed and washed. After that, pallets are prepared for transport. The fruits are cooled back to 5 °C and shipped to the Netherlands in special containers with controlled temperature and air conditions.
The ripening of organic avocado
Upon arrival at Nature's Pride the fruit is checked for quality. The ripening masters determine the ripening process for every single pallet, and humidity and temperature are set to measure. This way the climate of the country is simulated. Every organic avocado undergoes a specific selection process, only the best products get an organic EAT ME sticker. More information about the ripening process can be found here.
