CHILONGOLA AGRO FOREST AND LIVESTOCK LIMITED is continuously selecting and evaluating both avocado and other fruits cultivars to find cultivars that meet specific criteria determined by our Company’s greater strategy. These criteria include: finding cultivars of superior eating quality that mature either earlier or later than the current commercial cultivars to extend the season for both avocados and mangoes;finding cultivars with a better fruit size distribution, colour development (mangoes) and disease resistance; and also finding novel cultivars that assist in differentiating CHILONGOLA AGRO FOREST AND LIVESTOCK LIMITED from other Tanzanian fruit growers and marketers by the sheer variety on offer by the company.
