The mature fruits are of excellent quality with creamy yellow flesh, which is completely free of fibre. The fruits are green at first, but change to dark blue when almost ripe. They are relatively small, weighing up to 340 g, ovoid to pear-shaped with a tough, pebbly skin. Hass fruits ship well, have a good shelf life and have been enjoying wide consumer acceptance ever since the early 1970s. The round seed is small and separates readily from the flesh which has a fat content of 18 – 23% resulting in an excellent nutty flavour. The variety is a vigorous, moderately spreading tree. It comes into cropping at an early age and usually bears regularly and heavily. Recommended spacing is about 7 m x 8 m.
