Description

King River Avocados is one of the first avocado orchards established in the Albany region. Located in the Millbrook Valley, 18 km. from Albany, the trees grow on heavy red river loam soils. Simon and Sue Keast, having completed variety research, now concentrate on late varieties – Reed and Hass. The climate of cool long-growing conditions with harvest in late summer allows these avocados to develop dense and strongly flavoured flesh. The growers strive for good quality, unblemished fruit using a system of insecticide-free production. The orchard is small – approx 150 trees ranging from 30-year-old trees to recent plantings in 2004. The Albany Farmers Market has become the sole source of direct sale for King River Avocados.

Produce

Sadly our 2017/2018 AVOCADO crop was devastated by a severe frost in June resulting in severe burning of all our trees and the loss of our entre crop!
We hope to be back at market by late February 2019 with REED Avocados
