Hopefully it will bear fruit at a different time to the REED so that we can have Avocadoes most of the year round..

Easy to grow. Lovely fruit. Self pollinating (but way better now we have a bee hive also) We harvest after winter - around November, as the fruit tastes so much better after the cold weather and it's water content drops. A great choice for a backyard t...

MAREEBA, QLD, Australia

Bought as a seedling, so I am in for a wait before I will get fruit. I was worried about putting it in the ground as it looked a little flimsy, but is happy, and doing well. Standing up to the brutal Mareeba sun.

Nice creamie, smooth fruit. Plant the trees about 1.5 metres apart so hopefully they will dwarf each other as advocated by some gardening gurus

We purchased this 5ft tree from a local nursery for a good price. We built a large mound to improve drainage (we have clay soils) using a combination of quality soil from under an acacia baileyana, composted chicken poo/straw and a bit of cow manure. W...

Avocado - Hass (A)

A friend came over with their 2 year old son, and the young man snapped off the top of one of the two Avocado shoots. One died, and the other one that was topped off, shot right up! One year later, our only & lonely avocado has grown to over 2 1/2 feet!

★★ 11y ago


Tree is very susceptible to sun scald during hot summer days in Sydney when temperatures exceed 35 deg C. Causes leaf and branch dieback. Have now removed the tree because it continued to die back in hot weather.

Hass is probably the best variety for cool climates, the pollination in cold weather is outstanding good compared to most Avocados

This has not fully fruited as yet, the birds ate all the new buds off last year so this year we are ready with netting. We didn't feed much the past years now we have woken up.

Avocado - Hass (A)

Type A Avocados are the best for Southern Victoria, Hass will do very well. Just make sure you also have a type B for pollination but perhaps not Sharwill, it doesn't seem happy in the cold. Ettinger is the best pollinator for Hass but it wont fruititself
