Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A)

A strong, healthy, young Wurtz tree arrived. Bought it because is a dwarf and the variety could probably cope with Canberra winters and because it will pollinate with a Pinkerton bought a few weeks earlier from Daleys. Both young trees were potted into bigger pots are being over-wintered in my sun room. They are doing very well.

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.

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.
