Avocado Lamb Hass, the influencer of the Huerta de Pancha


La Huerta de Pancha has dressed up to see the Lamb Hass Avocado parade, the new variety of avocado, younger than the Hass and an influencer on the rise. For those who do not know the Lamb Hass avocado variety, it comes from a seed selected from a cross-pollination of “Gwen” (granddaughter of the “Hass”). The cultivation of the Lamb Hass avocado in Spain is very recent.

It is very similar to Hass, although wider and pear-shaped, with very rough skin and a dark green color that turns black as it matures. It has optimal degrees of fat that give it juiciness. This, together with its low presence of bone, makes it easy to spread, ideal for guacamole, sauces, toast, creams, etc. If you want to be sure that your lamb-hass avocados have reached an optimum degree of ripeness and are ready for consumption, watch this practical video made at La Huerta de Pancha.

Although at Huerta de Pancha we like to joke, imagining our farm as a fun red carpet where the best tropical fruits parade, the truth is that avocado is more than just a fad. It´s health properties are unquestionable and in the Axarquia, and specifically in the lands of the Vega, where the Huerta de Pancha is located, tropical fruits have found a perfect place to grow. At Huerta de Pancha we want to offer quality avocados for as long as possible, so we welcome this variety, lambhass, with open arms, which allows avocado consumption to be prolonged.

Buy Lamb Hass Avocados in our online store www.HUERTADEPANCHA.ONLINE and you will see the exquisiteness of our favorite tropical fruit.

How to make homemade guacamole easily and simply

Guacamole is one of the most famous sauces in the world. It is a dish mainly composed of avocado, the tropical fruit par excellence of La Huerta de Pancha. Guacamole has its origins in Mexico, as the avocado (the main ingredient of this sauce) is a food that comes from the central and southern part of this country. It was first produced before the 15th century and its fresh, unmistakable taste has conquered much of the world.

It is a sauce that can act as a host for a multitude of dishes, including nachos with guacamole. Its original recipe is prepared with mashed avocados, lime juice, tomato and chilli, but it is true that there are other ways of preparation.

At La Huerta de Pancha we have come up with a guacamole recipe that is easy to make, but no less appetising for that. Here are the steps to follow to make amazing homemade guacamole.

Guacamole ingredients

  • Half an onion
  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 4/6 ripe avocados
  • 4 limes for the juice
  • Two tablespoons coriander leaves
  • Serrano chili (Optional)
  • A pinch of salt and pepper

Preparation of homemade guacamole

  1. First, peel the half onion and wash the tomatoes. Next, peel the tomatoes into very fine, small pieces.
  2. Once the onion and tomatoes are chopped, take the ripe avocados and cut them in half. Separate the two parts and empty them with the help of a spoon.
  3. Add the avocado and lime juice to a bowl and start mashing the mixture with a pestle and mortar or fork.
  4. Add two tablespoons of chopped coriander leaf and mix with the tomato and onion.
  5. We reached the final step. If you like it spicy, chop the serrano chilli very finely and add it to the mixture along with the salt and pepper. If not, just add the salt and pepper and stir with a wooden spoon.

Once the process is complete, we obtain the final result, a delicious homemade guacamole made with products from La Huerta de Pacha and ideal as an aperitif at gatherings with family or friends.
