Avocados are the fatty fruits of the Persea Americana tree, which is native to Central and South America. They have a pleasant flavor and a smooth creamy texture that is excellent for young children. Avocados are high in vitamins and minerals and are high in fiber and heart-healthy mono-saturated fats.
Sugar, salt, and cholesterol are all minimal in these foods. They have 1.6 times the potassium of bananas and work as a nutrient enhancer by enhancing fat soluble vitamin A, D, K, and E absorption.
Avocados can be grown anywhere between 0 and 2500 meters above sea level, depending on the cultivar. Hass' and 'Nabal' are suited to elevations of 800-2100 M, whereas Fuerte' and 'Puebla' are suited to altitudes of 800-2100 M.Hass' and 'Nabal' are suitable for elevations of 800-2100 meters, while Fuerte' and 'Puebla' are suitable for altitudes of 1500-2100 meters.
If a tree is well irrigated, it can produce up to 1,000 fruits per year. Assuming you have 100 avocado trees, that is a yield of 100,000 avocado fruits. If one avocado goes at 10 shillings, you would make 100,000 shillings by selling the fruits. The main elements impacting Hass avocado yields are proper pest and disease control, plant density, and soil fertility. Because of the ideal climatic conditions, Hass avocado production has a lot of potential, especially in the Mt. Kenya and Rift Valley regions.
