Avocado - Reed (A)

$64.00 ($64.00-$69.00 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.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)

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.

$69.00 ($69.00-$79.00 choose a size)

A giant fruit weighting over 1kg. Good eating variety with smooth flesh and a creamy, rich flavour.

Avocado - Fuerte (B)

A beautiful avocado tree that prefers a very well draining soil that is enriched with manure or compost, but will not tolerate too much watering ( wet feet ). Mulch well and grow in a sunny position. Feed with a slow release fertiliser every 3-4 months.

It's a Type B and easy to grow. It flowers a bit too early in our cooler climate so fruit set is not great and a few are cocktail avocados. I planted it for cross pollinating our Type A's - but it tends to flower a bit earlier than all of them. It is ...

The Avocado pear likes plenty of water. It has been very dry of late. Fortunately, I had some spare water which I was able to use on my 2 trees as they were in the early fruiting period and I risked losing new fruit just setting. Now they are looking q...
