Mexico supplies 45 percent of the international avocado market. Of the 57 avocado producing countries, the other major producers are Dominican Republic, Peru, Colombia, and Indonesia in that order.
Also question is, where can you grow avocados in the United States?
They are thought to have originated in Mexico and Central and South America. Avocado trees were first planted in Florida in 1833 and then in California in 1856. According to NASS, California now accounts for the majority of U.S. avocado production, followed by Florida and Hawaii.
Do avocados grow all year round?
This meant a year-round supply of avocados. While the California growing season lasts from approximately February through September (with peak output over the summer), Mexico's crop is pretty consistent year-round and eclipses Californian production by about 3:1.
