The Hass avocados are the most well-known avocado, making up 80% of total avocados grown worldwide, but what is it about the Hass that makes millennials abandon homeownership in favour of avos?
The Hass is the most robust of the avocado varieties, hence its popularity! When stored above 15 degrees the Hass will usually take 10-15 days to ripen, from the day it is picked from the tree.
The Hass will go a dark purple colour when ripe, which makes it a lot easier to tell when it’s ready to eat! It should also yield to gentle pressure.
The rich creamy texture and nutty flavour of the Hass makes it the perfect avocados for literally every application. We like ours best on toast, as guac or in a smoothie! Also wonderful for any choc-avo recipes such as brownies or mousses.
