Avocado - Secondo (A)

2017 produced 65 massive fruit each over 550g. Tree is now 6 years old and benefits from winter pruning. It is definitely a B group variety, hundreds of bees last year did all the pollination. Getting my own hive soon.

My Secondo is actually a type B. Opens as female in afternoon then as male following morning. For better pollination collect some pollen on a small camel hair brush in the morning and then spread to female flower in PM.

Sept 2010: The fruit from this variety was rated very highly by Daley's staff, and it is also meant to fruit well without a pollinator, so i thought i'd give it a go. We have heavy clay soil, so i'm in the process of preparing its eventual spot in the ...

Secondo Avocardo - still alive but hasn't grown at all. Some parts of leaves are brown. Appears to have growth buds ready to sprout but has been like that for quite some time now.

Is Secondo upright or spreading? How hard would it be to keep it at 4m, growing in pretty near ideal condiions? Correy?

The Secondo Avocado Tree is giving fruit in it's second year (maybe that's why they call it secondo). I tell everyone.

Avocado - Secondo (A)

The Secondo can happily fruit without a B-Type Avocado making it ideal for home orchardists who just want one tree. Perhaps this is because it's parents have one as a B-Type the Sharwill and the other an A-Type the Hass.
