Peninsula Avocados (#007)

People said it couldn’t be done so far south, but Steve Marshall of Peninsula Avocados has confounded the naysayers. Grown in a region known for its outstanding cool climate wines, avocados benefit from that long, slow ripening period in exactly the same way as grapes do. While avocados from Queensland grow quickly and can be picked after just six months, Mornington Peninsula avocados take a year to slowly ripen, developing a very rich nutty flavour and seductively smooth texture. Steve manages five avocado farms, picking, packing and distributing the fruit, and aims to produce one million fruit annually in the next three to four years for a Melbourne market hungry for top quality avocados.
