New Zealand’s largest ever avocado crop has been harvested.
A massive 7,000,000 trays will have been sold by the end of the 2015 season.
That’s 40 percent up on last season and also up from a previous industry high of 6.1 million trays, reached three years ago.
The Australian market performed well and demand is growing in emerging Asian markets such as Singapore, Thailand and Malaysia.
Avocado trees bear fruit irregularly so crop volumes vary each year.
