Plant Type

Malama avocados are members of the laurel family, and they are botanically classified as Persea Americana Mill. Malama avocados are oblong fruits weighing around 1 to 1.5 pounds. They have leathery, smooth skin that ripens to a deep purple at maturity, and is easy to peel. The flesh is thick and creamy, without fibers, and high in oil content, offering a rich and nutty flavor. It is bright yellow near the central pit, shading to green closer to the skin. Malama avocado trees tend to be spreading, and are a regular heavy producer of the fruit, which ripen early in the fall. However, avocados do not fully mature until they are harvested.
