Peru’s Hass avocado exports in 2018 totaled 335,000 tons, worth nearly $660 million US dollars. It is expected that in 2019 there will be an increase in shipments, but not a very significant one, said Bustamente to the press.
“In 2017, Hass avocado prices were exceptionally high in the international market, so shipments in 2018, having a lower price, showed a lower growth, despite the large increase in tons exported,” he stated.
The Hass avocado is sometimes marketed as the Bilse avocado and it has a dark green-colored, bumpy skin.
