Il progetto

Adopt an avocado tree from the farm "Finca Montealegre" in Competa (Spagna) and receive your harvest in the form of organic avocados at home. Antonio will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: Although your adoption will be renewed automatically, you will always be informed in advance and may decide to cancel your adoption at any time as long as the preparation has not yet begun.

Cosa adotti?

You adopt an avocado tree from our farm in Competa (Spagna). Cultivation certified organic by the European Union since 2002. During the process of adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your avocado tree. The avocados trees in our Montealegre project are part of a series of farms that we cultivate in the Axarquía region, in the east of the province of Málaga between the Sierra Tejeda and the Mediterranean Sea. Due to its history and the particularities of the land, this region has many more smallholdings than large farms. Our avocados trees are part of the small farms owned by our partners, who have been cultivating them all their lives. And today, they form part of a project aimed at getting a fair value for the product. This means that you're adopting an avocado tree grown by farmers who work the land with respect and the natural resources available, of the most successful variety in the region, Hass. It dates back to 1926 when Rudolph Hass, a Californian postman, suddenly noticed a strange fruit on one of his trees. His children loved the taste of this mysterious fruit and begged him not to cut the tree down. The avocado tree is a vigorous tree that can reach a height of twenty metres. Its ideal climate is tropical-subtropical, so it requires mild winters and summers. The sex of avocado trees is interesting: their flowers are actually hermaphrodites, but self-pollination is complex due to the stamens and the pistil ripening at different times. Therefore, they need flowers in different sexual states to achieve pollination, but there are no female and male avocados! Your adoption is 21 years old and its productive life is around 40 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your adoption dies, we will replace it with no additional cost assuring the delivery of your harvest from others. Your avocado tree produces an average of 32kg of organic avocados each season. You do not have to commit to the consumption of the whole harvest. Each season you may decide what quantity to reserve and pay the maintenance in accordance with that amount. This way you will only pay for what you consume and will be able to sell any remaining harvest to others.

Che cosa ricevi?

During the season, you will be able to receive the harvest that you are reserving now: a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 4 boxes. Once you paid for the adoption, you will be able to plan your shipments from your user account. Shipping format: __4kg box of organic avocados__ * Hass avocado: pear-shaped, dark green skin that turns black when ripe, yellowish pulp with a nutty flavour, very creamy texture, small stone * Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming label since 2002 * Picked the day before shipment at their optimal point of ripeness and shipped in a cardboard box without plastics * Our trees are not a screw factory: each fruit is unique in appearance and size * One kilo contains between 6 and 8 fruits (the box contains between 24 and 32 fruits depending on the size) * Keep them at room temperature until they are ripe, once they are fully ripe put them in the fridge to keep them longer * It is a climacteric fruit that will continue to ripen once you receive it * It is a climacteric fruit, harvested when it reaches physiological ripeness but continues to evolve after harvesting until it is ready for consumption * Important: The fruits usually arrive hard, keep them at room temperature until they reach they are ready to eat; if you receive an alread ripe piece, you can put it in the fridge or eat it straight away

Quando lo ricevi?

The avocado is a fruit whose quality and flavour are perceived when it is harvested at the right moment of ripeness. Producing avocados in Southern Europe means that we can adjust the harvesting campaign and achieve a really delicious fruit. If you haven't tried a avocado with these characteristics, you really don't know its flavour! The harvesting season begins in late November and, depending on the weather, can last until May.
