Update: 3150 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Lovely fruits with avocado /sweet custard creamy flavour without fiberous texture. Very easy to look after. Prone to magnesium deficiency (yellow leaves in spring) but is quite easy to manage with epsom salt. Highly recommended. Citrus fertilizer and potash should be given once a year in Spring.

This year, not many fruits and very small and dropped very young. I think too much rain caused this condition.

Nice looking Ortega fruit, they seem much bigger than I imagined. I boughtone of these from a fruit stall the other day as a pollinator for Vista and Chris varieties
