Avocado Movement Our Varieties Frank


The origins of Frank

A chance seed was planted by Frank Colebourne on his Gisborne property in the 1960’s and grew to produce this amazing tree bearing large creamy fleshed fruit in the autumn.

The property was sold several times and in the early 2000’s Frank’s son Greg learned that the tree was going to be chopped down. Along with an orchardist friend Malcolm Peach they took some budwood cuttings and grafted onto rootstock then planted on Malcom’s orchard. It is registered as a variety with MAF and named after Greg’s father Frank. The variety is currently only grown on what is now Taylors Orchard.

The fruit of Frank

This is a green skinned avocado so does not change to dark black when ripe.  It has a rich buttery flavour and high fat content and is at its best from mid April.
