Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A)

Dig a big hole add heaps of organic matter. I used to bags of quality garden mix and put it on top of the hole -did not dig it in. Used the bags around and under the plant. After time the plant gradually sunk into the hole - it's thriving! | Troy - Redland Bay, QLD 27-Jan-2017

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A)

I have my gardener fully cut back my Pinkerton about every 5 years to keep it away from my house and electrical lines. Keeping a bit of the stem attached when harvesting will keep the tip of the fruit from turning dark. | Kristie Mamelli - Long Beach, CA 21-Jul-2017

Comments: - Survived last 3 Winters (1st with protection). Slow growing but healthy, about to flower. Had a Wurtz in NSW, was the best dwarf tree loaded with fruit after a few years. Bacon is supposed to be the best one for Tassie, so will see how this one goes ? Mulched well with pea straw, full sun outside.

Flowered in the first year of planting. Grafted dwarf pinkerton bought here at Daleys.

 

I love it because I love Avocado's :) This variety is thriving in my garden coastal area of Southeast Qld. I planted it on top on the ground,  before I did plant it I put gypsum and  heaps of organic matter into the soil below. I sat the plant on top of the soil and used  two bags of high quality organic garden mix, around and under the plant. I placed the avocado between two golden cane palms to help shade it from the fierce summer heat. Normal weekly watering, sometimes I make it two weeks before watering depends on the weather. It's been care free and it's just doing it's thing - growing nicely..........

Update - Saturday 11 and sunday 12/02/2017 was very hot 40. The next two days 13/14 -02 -2017 hot blowy winds. The 13/02/2017 it rained about 3 mm at night. The plant is really floppy at the top and droopy now. I have seen this before when the tree is stressed out. I usually leave it and it comes good, will see this time. I am currently using a cane to straighten the top of the floppy portion, will see how it goes (the plant is surrounded by stakes and secure). The colour of the plant is dark green and healthy- apart from the precious thing being stressed. It's in shade but the wind and heat is taking it's toll (still blowing hard) for now, soil is wet but not overly so. Will update. Avocado feeling not so stressed today 15/02/2017 and has started to straighten up, winds slowed heat reduced, haven't watered. It has put on a great growing spurt since been plant bit over six months ago - near seven foot tall now. Trunk skining compared to height - stakes needed else will fall at this stage. Fertilised recently with 10-10-10 osmocote bought from US. You probably won't find 10-10-10 in Aus.

New to my garden in spring 2015. This is going to extend my avocado harvest a little. I also have a wurtz which has grown really well here. The Pinkerton will not get quite as much sun as the wurtz due to the garage shading it for half the day but it is in the same fantastic soil which was the old chicken run.
