Avocado production worldwide 2017, by country Mexico harvested some 2.03 million tons of avocados in 2017, making that country the top producer of avocados worldwide.
Avocado cultivation

Avocados are native to Mexico and Central America but are now grown in many different regions across the globe. They take a significant amount of resources to cultivate, since an avocado tree takes between three and five years before it begins bearing fruit. Over 231 thousand hectares of avocado trees were planted in Mexico as of 2017/18, up from 168.11 thousand hectares in 2013/14.

Avocado consumption in the U.S.

Avocados have been sold in the United States for decades but only recently has their popularity exploded. In 2017, some 2.28 billion U.S. dollars of avocados were sold in the United States, which is more than double the sales value of avocados in 2014. Domestic consumption of avocados in the United States reached 2.45 billion pounds in 2018. To put this in perspective, in 2000, only about 542 million pounds of avocados were consumed in the United States.
