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...

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

This was in the yard when we bought the property looking very bedraggled - knowing nothing of avocado, we just left it - and it grew like crazy. No idea how old, or what stock it was, but each year has set at least 50 fruit, and we have harvested at le...

Produces a decent amount of fruit.  But needs protection from harsh sun. Does best in partial shade.

Recovered great from last wet season when I nearly lost it, I only just mannaged to dry the roots out before it rotted down to graft. Now it's had a year to establish I hope it handles the wet a bit better this year

Have a 6 year old Hass growing in the same garden as a 12year old bacon in Queenscliff, Victoria. Hass is sheltered between a mature fig & mature olive. Has never struggled, is 2 m tall and has held on well to 1st heavy crop. Bacon never had crop.

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!

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.

The leaves drooped then fell off, its still in the ground perhaps alive....help! Both my avocados have died the same way but the mango seems happy? thinking I may have a soil bacteria problem or it may be drainage.....

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.

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

Planted in the ground back in May.  Was going fine until a rabbit or possum stripped some leaves off the tree.  Have mulched tree and put some bird netting around it to protect from the rabbit or possum.

Alice (Toowoomba) The small hard bits in the avo could be stings from the fruit spotting bug...as yet, no biological control. U could spray something nasty???
