Colombian hass avocados coming to Canada

The Great Columbian Hass

We are pleased to announce some very exciting news here at Thomas Fresh! In a few weeks’ time we will be offering the FIRST EVER direct shipment of Columbian Hass Avocados to Canada.

In the last decade, North American consumers have become more interested in avocados. As demand has risen, Columbia has invested into suppling their own tasty avocados to the world. Columbia Hass Avocados hit the market only in the year 2000 and slowly are being introduced into grocery stores within Canada and The United States. The best part – this may drive prices down for avocados in general – chips and guac to celebrate?!

Columbian Hass vs Mexican Hass

Columbian Hass Avocados offer a bolder, creamier taste and are even bigger in size compared to the usual Mexican Hass Avocados that we are used to eating in North America. Columbian avocados are also rumoured to be great for cooking because of their high fat content (good fats only, don’t worry). This is a very exciting time for avocado lovers to try out a new kind of variety and pay less too!

Avocado Health Benefits & Fun Facts

What makes avocados so awesome in the first place? Where do we even begin. To start, they are the type of versatile fruit that can be eaten alone, cooked with, or thrown into a smoothie. They contain a high monounsaturated fat content (healthy fat!), which is perfect for restoring your energy. Avocados also pack a vitamin punch with high levels of fibre, potassium, vitamin K, b5, b6 and C. Surprisingly, just one avocado has twice the potassium as a banana!

Most avocados are currently grown in Mexico, these little miracle fruits are very efficient in nature, one avocado tree can produce 150 to 500 fruits a year – how impressive! When you are ready to eat an avocado look for one that is soft and has a purple colour. Very green avocados take about five days to ripen. Read more in our infographic below!
