In Chile, avocado crops range from the IV to the VI Region, with the largest surface (60%) concentrated in the V Region. Chilean yield areas are differentiated by their advantageous year‑round heat accumulation, which importantly results in early yields from July until February. Avocados trees that grow in more mountainous areas tend to be earlier‑harvest than those located closer to the coast.
Avocados trees require frost‑free zones and warm temperatures during the flowering and fruit development to achieve good yields and stable production over time.
Subsole’s primary avocado export markets are primarily the EU and the U.K., followed by Latin America, and especially Argentina.
The domestic Chilean market is also very important and a region where Subsole has become a leader using cutting‑edge, ripening‑selection technology tailored for ready‑to‑eat avocados, a true innovation for the Chilean market.
