Hanging on our uniquely compact trees, and basking in the glorious sun, our GEM® avocados are harvested at their best. After the fruit is nurtured on the tree for months, our pickers carefully pluck them from their branches, trim the stalks, and lay them gently in their baskets. Every individual GEM® is treated to the same high level of care and attention to ensure they reach you at their very best.
We put the love into every single GEM®.
GEM® is a special fruit with unique qualities. With our expertise, care & attention the trees bear the most beautiful gold-flecked, consistently high quality avocados.
GEM® has a wonderful, sustainable journey. From careful planting of new trees, nurturing our orchards, selecting the perfect fruit by hand, careful packing and, finally, transporting across the world.
Take a step into the world of GEM®, where quality produce is grown using advanced and sustainable methods, and where people unite through shared values, purpose and expertise to enhance wellbeing.
