Avocados are grown mostly in the upper Sagaing region, Mandalay region, Chin and Shan states.

To be able to export Myanmar avocados to the external market, the high-quality Hass avocado plantation will be highly focused to expand in the next avocado season, said U Myo Nyunt, vice-chair of the Myanmar Avocado Producers and Exporters Association.
The Hass avocado is an internationally marketable product. That is the reason, avocado growers have been engaged to an avocado service company in PyinOoLwin to expand their avocado cultivation. Estimated 500 acres of the avocado plantation will be extended in next monsoon June and July in PyinOoLwin.
“Next monsoon season, we will focus on Hass avocado plantation in PyinOoLwin. Hopefully, we will cultivate around 500 acres of plantation. There is an avocado service company named “Maymyo avocado in PyinOoLwin. The company is providing farming methods and technology for avocado. Many acres of farmlands have been engaged with the company to grow the avocado. We are planning to expand Hass avocado species in the next monsoon season,” he clarified.
The Hass avocado species is popular in the international market and will be expanded according to the market situation. Currently, the company is providing technical assistance to boost the avocado sector in PyinOoLwin.
