CBI Product Factsheet: Avocado in Germany
Exporters from developing countries (DCs) can profit from the growing German imports of fresh avocados. Good opportunities exist for ready-to-eat avocados. Additionally, DC exporters can differentiate themselves on the market with organic certification.
Avocado trees (Persea Americana) are grown for their edible fruits, and are native to Central America. Worldwide, the trees are cultivated in countries with tropical and Mediterranean climates. These include countries in South America (e.g. Mexico, Chile, Brazil, Peru and Colombia), Africa (e.g. Kenya, Rwanda and South Africa), Asia and the Middle East (e.g. Indonesia and Israel), Europe (Spain), the USA and Australia.
