Question & Answer

Avocado Varieties for North Queensland - Hello Ran out of space before. Also, can you successfully grow from seed? I've heard that it is a waste of time as they won't fruit? Can I purchase plants directly from you? From: ABERGOWRIE QLD

Yes you can grow Avocados from seed, but they will take from 5-10yrs to fruit and you are not always guaranteed a good fruiting variety. You can purchase direct from us. Here are some varieties that will be available soon. #DwarfAvocado1008 #AvocadoHass1001 http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/avocado.htm

Is this the grafted dwarf one.. When will it fruit... From: THURSDAY ISLAND QLD

Hass is grafted but it isn't a dwarf variety. Fruiting normally commences in the 3rd year.

Height of plant for sale From: NORTH RYDE NSW

The height of the plant is 3-4m instead of 5-12 like this one #AvocadoHass1001 You can keep it smaller by pruning it to size. The height of the tree that we sell will be about 60-90cm and in a 4litre bag.

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 | Jason - Portland, VIC 01-Jul-2010

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! | Jamie Long - Oswego, NY 13-Jun-2011

Wanted the Wurtz, but picked up the Hass by mistake. Not dissapointed at all though!

Question:

I have had this avocado hass planted for about 8 months now it is about 1m-1.5m tall but has not developed any fruit yet as it is still to young. The question i wanted advice on was that i have eaten hass Avocado before and like the taste but they are generally not all that large a fruit. I have seen other avocado trees around the Perth area that have a larger and slightly different shaped fruit on them (more pear shaped) and the skin of the fruit does not turn purple like the hass but remains green. Cold anyone please tell me the name of this avocado, more information about it, how it compares to the hass and best place to purchase in Perth? Would appreciate any advice. Thanks.

growing slowly but steadily. they seem to grow in spurts.

2016 1 avo the size of a golf ball last season but no flowers this year even though other hass avo is flowering.  plant looks a little sick.  i have come to realise planting avocado trees is like getting a pet... a committment. the vids on daleys are right. they must have a large mound if you have poor soil, they must have a frame and shadecloth around them when young (hessian is good until it rots. to last, you should use star pickets and shade cloth  this will cost about as much as the plant.)  and they must be watered often. say twice a week min every second day in the heat of summer. if you cannot provide this dont bother, there are lots of easier plants to grow.

The Hass variety is the third and last tree for my avocado collection. All the three plants are still in their pots but I will be planting them along side each to cover one side of the shed. The trees in return will get afternoon sun protection from the shed in the first couple of years. A win-win deal.

I will plant the trees about 1.5 metres apart so hopefully they will dwarf each other as advocated by some gardening gurus.

Westy1's Edible Fruits
Update: 654 days 10hrs

Comments: - 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. We staked it on 3 sides to help protect it from the wind. It is partly shaded from a eucalypt branch overhead. Survived winter frosts without any damage in Adelaide hills. We are on only rainwater so water it by hand once a week at the moment, probably more during its first summer and then it'll mostly be on its own. No flowers yet but shouldn't be long

I had two grafted Hass and they both died at same time (1.5yrs old) (they were flowering at this stage too..)

I think my area and scheme water too saline for them - they are not a common sight in Geraldton at all.

Goldcoaster says... [2905 days 16hrs ago]
Hi Amanda Ihave grown Hass for 20 years, overlooking a saltwater canal with approx.200 fruit a year. What Hass do not like is wet feet, mine grow on sand with a natural fresh water level at 2-3 metres. There are many avocados growing in gardens around this area so air salinity is not your problem.
amanda19 says... [2648 days 3hrs ago]
Wow - thanks GoldCoaster! although don't your trees have wet feet at that water table level? Our natural ground water is saline too...can only grow "saltine" kikuyu grass with it...(for eg)
Goldcoaster says... [2634 days 8hrs ago]
Amanda the fresh water level is a natural phenomenon and is 10 15 centimetres in depth, it runs on a thin natural clay layer with corresponding fresh water levels about every 3 4 metres throughout the sand layer (about 30 metres thick) where fine clay particles build up - so no wet feet. The fresh water layer is heavy in iron, sulphur and other minerals. The base of my trees have been inundated several times when we have had moderate flooding with no ill effects. Have you tried mounding them with a porous base? Best of Luck.

This is my second "A" type. Was planted Oct.'11 and as far as bushyness goes, in 6mth it has doubled.  Nice shape , attractive tree.

Comments: - I have a small veggie garden and want to grow a food forest so that the trees provide shade.  I bought this at the markets from Helgas nursey, leaves have gone yellow and fallen off.  I see that it likes more acid soil, so am going to pick up some coffee grounds.  Our wet season is slow in coming so it has been very dry.

Comments: - 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 least 20 (the bush turkeys and chickens have been at the rest. Just built a chicken coop around it, to stop the bush turkeys and possums getting at it - am sure there will be enough to share with the chickens!

Question: is there any way to ripen the avocados off the tree? we lose the ones that fall to the ground to the chickens - but the ones we take off don't seem to ripen!

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.
