Kenyan Hass Avocados are botanically classified as Persea Americana.

The Hass avocado is known for its quintessentially tumbled leathery fairly thick skin that turns near black when fully ripe. The flesh closest to the skin is a lush pale lime green colour and as it nears the central pit it develops a rich creamy yellow tone and softer, oil-rich texture. Hass avocado's flavour reflects its texture - creamy and smooth with a nutty and sweet finish.
