Question & Answer
Hi, which Avocado is most suited to the Adelaide Hills? From: Athelstone SA
The Wurtz Avocado is the most cold tolerant Avocado. Or you could try a seedling avocado however it would take longer to fruit. Make sure you watch our video on why people fail at growing avocado trees as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W_Vx86SCX4w #DwarfAvocado1008
I live in Canberra and have a small back yard but I would like to grow one or two avocado trees with hass like fruits. Can you suggest a tree for me? Additionally do I need 2 trees to cross pollinate? From: YARRALUMLA ACT
Frost is your biggest concern in Canberra. Bacon is our most cold tolerant variety. Most avocadoes will crop by themselves but you will get much heavier crops with and A and B flowering types. Check out the Pollination Youtube on our Avocado page https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aahzspd1Yzk #CategoryAvocado1326
Avocado Varieties for North Queensland - Hello Ran out of space before. Also, can you successfully grow from seed? I've heard that it is a waste of time as they won't fruit? Can I purchase plants directly from you? From: ABERGOWRIE QLD
Yes you can grow Avocados from seed, but they will take from 5-10yrs to fruit and you are not always guaranteed a good fruiting variety. You can purchase direct from us. Here are some varieties that will be available soon. #DwarfAvocado1008 #AvocadoHass1001 http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/avocado.htm
Hi. Do you send to Adelaide? We can't get Wurtz locally. Would like two or three depending on availability, packaging etc. What are the available sizes? Thanks. From: Bridgewater SA
Yes we do send to Adelaide. To find out how much freight will cost to your address please visit http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/Freight-Special.php and enter your postcode. We only have one size which is the pot size of a 4litre bag and is usually under 90cm tall. #DwarfAvocado1008
Height of plant for sale From: NORTH RYDE NSW
The height of the plant is 3-4m instead of 5-12 like this one #AvocadoHass1001 You can keep it smaller by pruning it to size. The height of the tree that we sell will be about 60-90cm and in a 4litre bag.
