The avocados from Granada are known accross Europe for their properties and their taste. Not for nothing, the Costa Tropical is the only place in Europe with the ideal weather conditions to grow this fruit. From our land we distribute a selection of the best avocados, of different varieties, to the rest of the country and to other neighboring countries.

The avocado is one of the major players of the production and distribution of Frutas Fajardo. Currently we work with Hass, Fuerte and Bacon varieties, of which a 50 % is of our own production. The Hass variety is the most cherished one in the national and international market, and also the best known one. With a high quality and smooth flesh, a grainy and green skin which darkens during its maturing period, it offers a wide harvesting time, but it cannot withstand the cold. Because if this, the avocados from Granada, from the Costa Tropical, have no rivals.
The Fuerte variety is more shiny and with a smaller seed, so it offers more flesh. This variety smells like walnut and its production requires a gentle care. Lastly, Bacon avocados, native to Central America as the previous variety, have a thinner skin and are the perfect match to Hass avocados. While the native avocado from our region is harvested between September and April, we also import avocados with the same qualities from other countries between May and August.
