About the Hass
The Hass is the most popular avocado in Australia and the most common variety found on supermarket shelves. It is an oval-shaped fruit with a small to medium seed and it is best picked from August through to November. The Hass is super delicious and very easy to peel.
A Hass avocado has a distinctive skin that is rougher than other varieties, it is ripe when the dark green skin has deepened in colour to aubergine or royal purple.
Tips for Storing & Eating the Hass
Did you know that avocados do not ripen until they are picked? And because we send
them to you within 24 hours of picking, they will take about 7-10 days to ripen.
With some varieties the skin will darken to a purplish-black colour when ripe. This is not the case with the Fuerte variety; it will stay a deep green. You’ll know when the Fuerte is ready to eat when the avocado is quite soft to touch over the entire surface. Don’t be tempted to open it too early! If some spots still feel hard, wait another day.
The beauty of buying direct from us is that only a couple of hands will have
touched your fruit so your little beauties will remain bruise-free.
The Hass is the most robust of the avocado varieties, hence its popularity
with supermarkets. When stored above 15ºC the Hass avocado will usually
take between 10 and 15 days to ripen.
The Hass avocado 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.
