The King Avocado 2017 season is now finished.

To all our customers, a very big thank you for your support.
Consistent supply and quality – guaranteed!
Set on 160 hectares, with over 95,000 trees, King Avocado in the Far North is New Zealand’s largest Avocado Orchard.
Our warm climate, pure water and ideal growing conditions result in recognisably better quality avocados. And by sourcing from just one orchard, and managing every step of the picking and packing ourselves, we can guarantee consistent supply and quality.
We can supply green hass avocados or pre-ripen them to suit your needs. We deliver 5 days a week direct from our orchard to your kitchen.
