The Southern Cape is South Africa’s newest and smallest avocado region. It helps fill the gap between the producing seasons of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal whereupon the Southern Cape avocado harvest follows until into January. At this stage this region’s avocado potential is limited by water access, soil types and the possibility of winter rainfall during flowering. It will probably always remain a marginal part of South Africa’s overall avocado production but production levels are still growing.
