Irvine’s still growing…Avocados

Irvine Ranch is a top producer of America’s new favorite fruit.

Irvine’s Mediterranean climate creates ideal conditions for growing avocados.

There are 100,000 avocado trees that begin in Orchard Hills and rise along the Lomas de Santiago Hills in Irvine’s Northern Open Space Preserve.

Irvine Company planted the orchard several decades ago, and The Irvine Ranch has become one of the top five avocado producers in the U.S., with a reputation for growing some of the best-tasting avocados on the market.

Today, avocados are more popular than ever as we discover all the ways to enjoy the healthy fruit on toast, sandwiches, salads and chips.
