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.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 8/10

HappyEarth's Edible Fruits
Update: 2347 days 14hrs

Comments: - 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 around it to provide partial shade for the young avocado in its first few years.  I feel this has made a big difference to the success of growing avocados after a couple of early failures.  Good Luck!

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 6/10

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 3202 days 6hrs

Comments: -

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 trunk and dropping the young fruit that was developing.

Now that we've had a cold and wet winter (2009), it is covered with young growth and looks like it will do very well.  Hopefully any fruit will survive the coming summer.  A coat of white acrylic paint to the trunk should prevent any more burns.

Young trees need protecting from high winds and the sun for the first couple of years, but once it has lots of hard wood it will tolerate just about all conditions.

Question:

I understand avocados don't like pruning.  Is this the case?  Ours is a funny shape and could really do with a hair cut to improve this.  If it can be pruned, what season is the best time to do this (I presume Spring?)

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted)

BJ11_old_address's Edible Fruits
Update: 2352 days 23hrs

Comments: -

Initially purchased with the intent of spending its life in a pot I've decided to pull up some pavers and set it free in the ground! It is going in a slender bed with improved soil (most of it is compost, soil improver and cow poo), and is protected from the worst of the WA summer suns. Fingers crossed that it will make loads of babies with the Fuerte friend I purchased! It is planted about 1.5m from the Fuerte. I'm hoping the Wurtz will grow to be about 2m x 2m

Its leaves have lost a lot of their green so I have added some trace elements (iron and zinc) and new growth appears to be greener. Within weeks new leaves are emerging with the standard red/copper colour which I hope indicates that whatever was missing is back! Now a few months later it has grown about 50cm and is a solid little shrub. The outside leaves get scorched on hot days and the plant will drop older leaves if it has water stress (must remember to water a bit more often) but nutrients and water are resulting in a tough little avocado.

In August 2011 it is flowering like crazy (the leaves are going brown again and being replaced by new leaves - it doesn't look the best but the plant seems happy). By October 2011 the tree has lost all its old leaves and is covered in rich lush new growth.

This tree still struggles with hot summer days - but extra mulch, and water help. I don't think any fruit set - but it continues to put on volumn and looks healthy.

i love Avocados. Newly planted in Semi shaded position. Prepared base with a mixure of sand, quincan, potting mix, and compost.  Going by the theory of needing loads of dranage in the wet season but also doesn't really like our hot full sun, so filtered sun would be better.

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Waterfall's Edible Fruits
Update: 1027 days 9hrs

Comments: -

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 until late autumn, from knee high to well over my head in height. It also flowered in spring but i cut them off to let it grow more before setting fruit.

I have shade cloth behind this as a wind barrier which also shields my mango trees a little too from strong southerly winds. When it was young I had some 50% shade cloth above which shades it from about 1pm onwards in mid summer, it didn't seem to like the sun on it all day long when it was small.

It is heavily mulched with lucerne hay, aged chicken poo in spring and some blood n bone containing potash and worm wee.

Paltahead's Edible Fruits
Update: 2402 days 3hrs

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 has almost died on a few occasions from waterlogging or sunburn. It is almost three years old and yet to produce a fruit. I have moved it three times and finally it seems happy where it is. Right now it is starting to produce lots of flower buds and hoping we may get our first 'paltita' this year. Heaps of new leaf growth, increase in size, and had lots of flowers which have  mostly all dropped off.  Also discovered another avo type growing ferociously from rootstock so pulled it off.

Comments: -  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 waterers it most of the time and it seems happy. I have had a shade cloth over it but it seems happy enough without it on- no real sunburning or wilting going on yet (its only spring now..)

Bought this a few months ago. Hasn't really thrived, planted in a mound in the ground. The leaves have slowly dropped off one by one. The stem is still green though and can see some small buds so fingers crossed it will bounce back. Think it may have gotten baked in the hot sun and water didn't seem to soak into the soil properly so not sure it was getting sufficient water. We have just pulled it up, put it in a large pot and moved it to a more sheltered position to protect it from the harsh afternoon sun. Hopefully it will make it through as I looooove avocados

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.
