AVOCADO QUALITY METER

Avocados should not be harvested until they reach a degree of maturity which they will ripen to acceptable eating quality and deliver a positive experience to consumers.

Avocados should also not be harvested too late as late hanging fruit place a carbohydrate load on the tree which reduces next years  crop yield.

Avocado maturity testing can be done using the Avocado Quality Meter, for testing services please contact +254722 292 360

ASOK encourages farmers to form cooperatives/groups so as to benefit from economies of scale, better bargaining power and a stronger voice to promote farming as a business with linkages along the avocado value-chain.
