Question & Answer

How long will this plant take to produce avocados? Will it survive in Sydney? or is there a variety better suited to Sydney climate? Would 1 plant be enough to ensure fruit? (I've read that some people need 2 plants and A plant and a B plant) Thank you From: BANKSIA NSW

Grafted Avocado will flower immediately, but we recommend you remove flowers for the first two years to allow good root establishment. Yes this is a good choice for Sydney in a frost free location. As an A group variety this will fruit on it's own, but the Reed avocado benefit from a B group to cross pollinate this will also extend your fruiting season.

I wold like to know which fruit trees you would recommend to plant in Kangaroo Valley 2577? Weather can be extreme especially in summer. I was considering the Reed avocados, pecan? Could you also include the height the trees grow to? From: LUGARNO NSW

I was very excited to recieve my Grafted Reed Avocado from Daleys!, but on closer inspection when i opened the box revealed that the avocado plant was riddled with Mealey Bugs - i mean they were everywhere on the avocado plant, other than that plant was in tip top shape.

After treating the Mealey Bugs i have potted the avocado - have given this plant a little more TLC than the other tropical plants i have as avocado's are notoriously fussy when it comes to wet feet. It now sits in a big 510mm pot which has been turned into an "Air Pruned Pot" - this is my first time experimenting with an air pruned pot ( made these myself).

Many benefits with air prunning pots i.e increased drainage, no root bound problem, bigger tap roots and more vigerous growth. I will update progress on the Reed Avocado after an Adelaide winter which is quickly approaching with only 8 weeks left of summer!.

Just planted this one as I love the creaminess of  the Reed avocado.  I have it in full sun, so at the moment I have a beach umbrella next to it that I put up if we are going to have a really hot day.  Seems to be doing ok so far.
