Avocado Plantation

The farm has over 1500 avocado trees of a number of different varieties which each year, depending on the weather, yield in excess of 105 tonnes of avocados.
The avocado is a tree native to Central Mexico.

The avocado tree can grow to 20 metres in height, whilst the pear-shaped fruit can be as large as 20 centimetres long. The avocado tree also takes 5-7 years to yield fruit.
Avocados have long been acknowledged for their health benefits.

Did you know…. Avocados also have 35% more potassium than bananas. They are rich in B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.
Externally, avocado oil is now being adapted for treatment of eczema and other skin conditions.
