About GEM: GEM is a commercial black-skinned fruit variety from the Lamb Ranch in California. The average fruit weight is 7-11 oz and the harvest season is roughly that of Hass. The tree has an open and spreading growth. Perhaps the best character of GEM is that the fruit, when cut in half, has a much slower oxidation rate (the flesh stays greener longer) than does Hass. The tree has less alternate bearing than does Hass.
