We offer avocados year-round straight from our trees in Michoacán, Mexico.
95% of the avocados consumed in the United States are Hass of which a large majority are grown in Michoacán, Mexico. Orchards are centered around the city of Uruapan, which is rich in volcanic soil at a wide range of elevations and allows for continuous avocado production.
Avocados are sized into categories based on the weight of each fruit and then packed and subsequently named according to the number of each size category that fit into a 25 lb carton. For example, a “size 60” refers to a size category where 60 avocados are packed into a 25 lb box. This means that the larger the size, the less fruit will be in the given carton. For more information, reference the graphic and table below.
|Weight||13.75 – 15.70 oz||11.75 – 14.00 oz||10.50 – 12.50 oz||9.50 – 11.50 oz||7.50 – 9.50 oz||6.25 – 7.50 oz||4.75 – 6.25 oz||3.75 – 4.75 oz|
At Urapa Produce, we grow, package, and distribute sizes 32 through 84 across the United States.
While the quality does not differ, avocados are graded as either #1 or #2. A #1 avocado will have little no no visible scarring and is typically what you will find in the bigger box grocery stores across the Unites States. #2 avocados might be found in smaller produce markets and are also commonly used in food production and restaurants.
