Are avocadoes quite possibly the perfect fruit? Rich in nutrition, versatile, and universally loved by populations around the world, avocadoes are a desirable commodity for consumers, suppliers, and farmers in rural Africa. Global demand for avocado has been steadily increasing for decades, with no sign of slowing down, giving farmers the ideal chance to leverage this opportunity with free avocado trees provided by FreeTree. Due to consistent year-round sales demand, reduced labor and production costs, and high profit margins, our avocado trees are a treasured source of sustainable farming income for farmers in underserved rural communities of Africa.

This nutritional powerhouse also serves to help provide food security to historically disadvantaged communities and low-income families, offering essential vitamins like B2, B3, C, and E, and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and copper.
