                                           Lamb Hass Avocado Tree
                            Lamb Hass is an ideal choice for gardens and landscapes where space is limited.

Lamb Hass was originally named BL122 when it was in the University of Riverside avocado research program.  Lamb Hass has become a very popular avocado for 3 primary reasons;

  1. the fruit matures in the late summer and fall, when Hass is out of production and Hass fruit is expensive

  2. Lamb Hass trees are very dense branching and are compact growing trees needing a lot less space than Hass

  3. Lamb Hass fruit is about 2 times the size of Hass, so it is very large fruit and still full of the true Hass flavor.

Usually is a shouldered pear shape and is normally black with green spots. It is a substantial appearing fruit. Tree grows upright and is very compact in growth.

Lamb Hass starting to be grown in larger amounts commercially in California. Matures later than Hass, in July through September. Do not picked fruit early, needs to be greenish black to black on tree at time of harvest, about September through December.

Avocado Nutrition

Avocados are a healthy addition to your diet. Avocados are cholesterol and sodium free and have been shown to be excellent sources of monounsaturated fat (good fat), which in studies has been shown to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol. They are also high in phytochemicals, natural plant compounds that provide a variety of health benefits.

According to the “5-a-day” program, deeply hued fruits and vegetables with colors such as green, blue, purple, red, white, yellow and orange provide vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytochemicals. These nutrients help overall health and boost energy, protect against the effects of aging and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. Green fruits and vegetables such as avocados help lower the risk of some types of cancer, as well as help maintain vision health and strong bones and teeth.
