Hass, worldwide, is the most popular commercially grown avocado. It is durable, making it easy to transport and easier for home growers to harvest without damaging the fruit, and has a reliable shelf life. It is prized for its lovely green-skin, oval fruit with a pebbly texture and pleasing appearance against the lush, glossy foliage. It is the standard to which all avocados are compared to today. Hass grows all year long.
