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.

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.

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.

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...
