Moderately resistant to Anthracnose, susceptible to Black Spot. Average wt. 300g. (Video - Grafting a Florigon Mango)

Native to China, the Yuzu has been used and cultivated in this region for thousands of years. The fruit is tart, resembling a grapefruit with mandarin overtones.

The yuzu is more cold tolerant than most other citrus, being able to tolerate to -5 degrees

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.

Avocado - Secondo (A)

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.

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.
