magnificent tree no doubt about it

after the Hass did not flower this year we thought we wouldn't get a crop from this one...thank goodness we were wrong!  the crop is smaller than expected but still must have close to 100 fruit

we think this is the best avocado we have ever tasted..skin is so thin you could eat it and the flesh is like butter. the fruit are also really big

Hello Marg, I am planning to plant a Hass and a Fuerte in this Spring. However, some books the mentions that the Fuerte variety is prone to fruit rotting fungus (anthracnose), have you experienced this with your tree?

By the way, your avocado trees start fruiting incredibly fast and they look most healthy too. Where did you buy the trees from? Cheers, Cam

Fred1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2769 days 13hrs

Comments: - This tree was here when we purchased the property.  Loads of avocados, but has died back this last year, as it was water bound for approx 8 weeks in our heavy wet - Jan 2009.  It has currently been sitting in water for the last 5 - 6 weeks [Jan/Feb 2010], so we are yet to see how it goes this year. Unfortunately we lost our best tree [Shephard Avocado] to the water last year.  It had massive crops on that tree [over 5 metres tall also].

Linnie's Edible Fruits

I think we started with a Sharwill and a Hass , but our avos have gone the same way as the mangoes, really. We have one now which is a beauty but I think it is different Avo than we first selected. Very early on, it suffered stress with a very hot dry summer and we simply didn't have spare water. It effectively 'died', but the rootstock shot up again, and we now have a sedling stock (???)

One of those two initial avos has always suffered stress, whilst the other, just 7-8 metres away, copes with everything. Both are over ten years old, so we are growing more in readiness, but are simply allowing self-seeded avos saved from nice fruits to grow up where they choose, as we've heard frequently that seedlings are best in marginal areas.

Pest Control:

The only issues we've had have been fruit-spotting bugs, or something that leaves similar marks. Whilst the nasty galls are a pain, they seem less of a hassle than spraying, as they don't affect too many fruit, so I ignore them. Other than that, we'

MOODLUMANSIONS1's Edible Fruits

Comments: - 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 quite healthy and some rain we had last week was a great blessing.

2/3rds of the trees died, but three are just going beautifully. I hear avaocado is a fickle tree, so a wait and see on these. May be a goer for the hills of Warners Bay
