The Chilean Avocado’s
The first Hass avocado trees were planted in Chile in 1949 on fertile land located at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Since then, these plantations have expanded rapidly, making Chile one of the largest producers and exporters of this avocado variety in the world. The irrigation system, coming from the thaws of the mountain; its harvesting and respective packaging processes, have allowed to obtain a high quality fruit, whose properties and exquisite flavor has already conquered the culinary culture of all the kitchens of the world.
Its flavor and texture is judged according to the amount of oil they contain, determined by the percentage of dry matter that remains after a particular test process to which the fruit is subjected. A higher percentage of dry matter corresponds to a higher percentage of oil, which means more flavor.
