Meet the growers
There are nearly 1,800 avocado growers in New Zealand producing avocados off over 4,000 hectares. The majority of avocados are Hass with small quantities of other varieties.
New Zealand avocado growers are proud of what they do and they work hard to make this a successful industry. Seed was brought to New Zealand in the early 1900s and since this time, the industry has developed to become New Zealand’s third largest fresh fruit export.
