This is a (B) type pollinator that requires an (A) type pollinator to set fruit.

Avocado - Hass (A)

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Most popular variety due to both its superior taste and excellent keeping qualities. Medium sized, pear-shaped fruit has an excellent creamy, flesh. The leathery rough dark-purple skin turns to black when ripe. H Aug-Dec. Hass is an A type variety and for good fruit set a B type variety is needed for cross pollination. Suggested varieties to grow alongside a Hass are Shepard, Sharwill, Fuerte, Bacon (if you're in a cooler climate)and Linda. Happy fresh avocado smashing.

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A)

$79.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Dwarf tree producing a rounded fruit with the later crop being more pear-shaped. The thick flesh has a smooth-texture, good flavour and high oil content. It shows some cold tolerance and bears consistently heavy crops. H June to August The fruit is medium sized with green leathery pliable skin and a small seed. This is an excellent choice for backyards, higher yields in trees that are cross pollinated with a 'B'variety avocado near by.

Avocado - Reed (A)

$54.00 ($54.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Large, round , thick skinned variety with a smooth, green skin. They have a mild to rich flavour and have a good storing ability once cut and placed in the fridge. They are also a great choice for using in salads as they tend not to go mushy as does a Hass when very ripe. H Aug - Dec

Avocado - Secondo (A) ®

$79.00 ($79.00-$79.00 choose a size)

Superior flavour, with smooth, creamy flesh and pear-shaped, green-skinned, fruits that are textured like hass. A vigorous variety that commences fruiting in its 2nd year. Self pollinating. H Jul - Dec This is a local selection with Hass and Sharwill as parents that was selected by Daleys and is proving an excellent backyard variety as well as being our nursery favourite.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A small tree to about 4m popular for the back yard. A moderate cropper of medium sized rich, high quality fruit. Pear-shaped with dark green skin using Guatamalan rootstock. Aug - Oct Does best if grown with a B type pollinator.

Avocado - Noela

$79.00

This variety produces huge oval fruits that can weight 1-2 kg. One fruit is almost large enough to feed the family! It has superb flavour and delicious smooth flesh. The selection was made from a seedling tree growing in Sunnybank, Qld. Unfortunately, we have not made an assessment as to whether it is A or B, as strong flowering needs to be observed carefully

Dwarf Avocado - Lamb Hass (A)

$59.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

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 the more common Hass 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. This variety has Plant Breeder Rights over it.

Avocado - Choquette (A)

$79.00 ($59.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A giant fruit weighting over 1kg. Good eating variety with smooth flesh and a creamy, rich flavour. The trees have good disease resistance, it is a cross between a Guatemalan and a West Indian type avocado and has smooth green skin when ripe.Daleys is starting production of these in spring 2018 and anticipate having trees for sale by spring 2020.

Avocado - Bacon (B)

Avocado Bacon was in great condition when I received it. It is still to be planted in my garden on the South Coast. I selected this variety as it it a smaller variety and also recommended as a plant tolerant of cooler conditions. I am looking forward to getting a complimentary variety to grow with Avocado Bacon when it becomes available. I can highly recommend the quality of fruit trees, planting instructions and delivery from this nursery.

Avocado - Bacon (B)

I have kept my plant in the pot and will be planting towards the end of August mid September this will allow for the winds to subside and a chance for the ground to have dried out. On the Razorback the ground is very soggy. I would like to give the Avocado the best conditions I can for good growth.

Claire the secondo meet your requirements however because of your climate you are best to go with the Bacon which is more sensitive to the cold. It is grafted so you will get fruit quicker then seedling trees.
