DWARF AVOCADO - LAMB HASS (A)

Lamb Hass AvocadoBy MarkMelb on Daleys Fruit Tree Forum All Rights Reserved, Used By Permission (Photo Credits)
Botanical Name: Persea americana
Description

Larger and rounder than most other avocado varieties. It has a very dark, almost black skin that only gets darker as it ripens. The flesh is a pale green colour with a creamier consistency than its more common Hass relative and it has a slightly nutty and creamy taste. It has a medium-sized seed. Lamb Hass is a smaller tree that bears more fruit and it matures later in the season than regular Hass avocados. The symmetrical fruit has pebbly skin with green flecks.

Updating my Lamb Hass as didnt have available on Daleys 4 years ago

Growing very well in ground here in Melbourne - handles wind ok and hot summers with care while young (cover with sheet on 40c days)

I would still call it a Semi Dwarf at this stage as Birdwood Tag suggested this.

Only time will tell?

I planted Lamb Hass & Shep 2015. Going well but starting to yellow some leaves. Ph is 7.5 Applied iron chelates today. Any advise on lowering ph. Told chook poo may burn roots.

Also have not fertilized first year (planted Jan 2016) apart from compost and handfull of blood and bone. Will start compound fertiliser Dec 2016 10%. Jan 40%. Feb 40%. Mar10% is this correct. Some say fertilise in Autumn??

How did yours grow so far? Do you have some pics to put up on Forum of your experiences? From start to now - where do you live also?

Also Avos do best in Acid soils of about 5.25ph

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A) (Grafted) 9/10

Lamb Hass is a very productive & problem free tree. The fruit taste similar to Hass but are usually a little softer. The tree is quite compact for an avocado and I am growing mine in a 160L pot. This variety pollinates well on its own and is resistant to sunburn.

The tree is also much more upright compared to The spreading nature of a regular Hass tree.

Seems to be doing well, planted in mid winter at about 1m high and flowering already 1.5 months later. The branches droop a lot so I will keep it staked until it has a few good strong branches to hold rest of the plant up.
