Customer Tips & Reviews Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)
LESCHENAULT, WA, Australia
Not that fussed on this tree. It's droopy and dense growth is not good for air circulation through the canopy and it doesn't seem to set a lot of fruit as yet. The fruit is the more watery type, thin skin.
GEROGERY, NSW, Australia
Appears More frost tolerant than my Bacon! FLowereing in its second Spring
FULHAM GARDENS, SA, Australia
. looks awesome, is a challenge to grow, very rewarding, birds wont steal them. i have 3 wurtz and a bacon. bacon is only a year old for cross polination.
ST ALBANS, VIC, Australia
Two wurtz are planted together. They are quite droopy, only 1 meter high. Tried to stake the branches so that they'd grow vertically. Apart from that, I did not have any problems with them.
KENSINGTON GARDENS, SA
Nice looking plant, more frost damage over winter than other avos in our garden
Heathridge, WA, Australia

Have always loved avocados. Never attempted growing one as believed it was too hard. Finally took plunge. Love the avocado in a smoothie with vanilla ice cream.
WATERFALL, NSW, Australia
This is the first fruit tree I bought and I guess where the addiction started. The tree was frozen in time for at least 8 months some of which it was in a pot then in spring it went into the ground and took off like a rocket and didn't stop growing unt...
Small size. Photo taken a year after planting- it has grown alot and definitely changed shape. It is a bit weepy compared to others. I picked the flowers off this year, maybe next year I will leave them on. I have an earth bag underneath it that drip...

Lovely looking tree that's small enough for a suburban block. Needs regular watering to get established even though planted in winter.

Huntingdale, Vic, Australia
I love avocado or palta as I call them. My little tree is a dwarf and is a straggly looking, small weeping tree hidden between a camellia and an Aussie hibiscus bush. It is viritually sheltered and hidden inbetween these 2 metre tall shubs. This tree...
Strathpine, Qld, Australia
I (and my dogs) just love avocado. This dwarf variety was the one recommended for a small yard. Doing very well with lots of new growth. Must take a more recent pic.

No fruit yet but growing well and looking forward to fruit when it develops.
Upper Ferntree Gully, VIC, Australia
A lower growing tree with a weeping habit which produces fruit like the Shepherd variety, but is better suited to cooler climates.It has done very well in our garden, but it suffered in the extreme heat of January 2009, sustaining burns to its young tr...
Unanderra, NSW, Australia
Hard trees to get established - starting to do well now after a couple of years in the ground. Literally planted by placing on top of the soil and mounding around it with a mixture of potting mix and compost. Also, are growing temporary shade trees...
