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
