Avocado export season continues

7:30 am on 16 October 2010

Picking of avocadoes for export continues in the Bay of Plenty.

Country Life reports picking started at the end of September and will continue through to February.

However, the fruit has not 'sized up' as it would usually - possibly due to a difficult and late pollination last November.

But prices are very good for this time of year.
