The Story Behind the Hass Avocado

  • The Hass avocado was named after Rudolph Hass who tried to graft different varieties of avocado into a seedling he brought home, but due to his futile attempts of making fruit, he left it alone.
  • It were the Hass children who discovered the fruit of the avocado tree that Rudolph had left alone.
  • Millions of avocado trees were all genetically descendants of the single mother tree propagated by Rudolph Hass which he was not able to catch in despite its growing popularity.

Avocados: The Fuerte vs. The Hass

There are many different types of avocados but these two are especially important due to the competition that arose between them.

Their differences are:

  • In color and outward appearance.
  • The Hass avocado trees grow faster, produces more fruit, and are easier to propagate.
  • The Hass avocados are great for getting shipped internationally due to its thick skin.

Other variants of avocados tried to enter into the market as well such as the Gwen avocado, but they had entered the market too late.
