Research and development of Avocado cultivars

History & expansion

Allesbeste Nursery was established during the 1980's in the town Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa. The nursery has since been expanded numerous times and the end is not yet in sight.

Allesbeste does not only focus on its own success. Our aim is to help improve and develop the avocado industry in a sustainable manner. We are also actively involved in research and development as well as consultation. It is also through this active research that the nursery have succeeded in developing and releasing Maluma as a promising, newly developed cultivar.

The Maluma is a dark skinned cultivar with immaculate appearance and astonishing taste - researched and developed by our nursery. Its texture is smooth and ideal for any recipe. With a whole-hearted nutty taste it's a taste bud explosion! Some of this avocado's key characteristics are: small seeds with more flesh, purple-black thick skin, smooth and light fibre.

Annual Maluma symposium

Maluma symposium

Although this symposium was initially held solely as an information session to farmers, it has developed into a cross-platform information and networking symposium.
The main aim is to stimulate thought into what the modern agriculture environment brings about and, what farmers and other intermediaries can do to improve on the final product delivered to the consumer.
