This avocado was a seedling of the ‘Cook’ cultivar planted on the property of David Fairchild in the early 1900s and is a B-type West Indian-Guatemalan hybrid.

 

It has the unique distinction of being one of the few varieties that can hold fruit into March.

 

The round/oval fruit has green skin and has a very nice, creamy hazelnut flavor, with a somewhat large seed.

 

Though not a commercial avocado due to poor flesh-seed ratio and scab problems, these issues shouldn’t have kept ‘Kampong’ from developing a backyard niche in south Florida, yet it has never been commonly propagated by nurseries.

 

Race: West Indian-Guatemalan hybrid..

Flower type: B

Country: Florida - USA
