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
