A and B type Avocadoes

    6 responses

SlickMick starts with ...
I have a 3 year old Hass avocado (A type) that is ground planted and is fruiting for the first time (3 fruit):)

I would like to put a B type into a pot so that I can get a better pollination from the Hass but also pick up a crop from the tree in the pot. So, I am looking for a smallish tree with a similar flowering schedule to the Hass. Nice tasting fruit would be good too.

Are avocados good in pots?
Potted avocados would produce much fruit would it?
Any room in the garden for an avocado?
Selling the car and planting avocado B in the driveway would be great.
Or in the nature strip?
Have you looked at the daleys B avocados list?

I have checked the Daley's list of B type avocados but as to which is the best regarding appropriate flowering time and taste I have no idea really. I suppose the compatability of flowering time is the most essential followed by size.

Unfortunately the car has to stay and there are areas in the yard that are sacrosanct ie the space under the clothes line, the veggie patch and the space that other trees use. So into a pot it must go, that way I can manage its size and move it according to seasonal conditions.

Have you read the Louis Glowinski book or read http://www.hort.purdue.edu/newcrop/morton/avocado_ars.html#Pollination?
Have you tried using the sunny fruit tree branches for clothes drying?
Will any A and any B be okay?
Would the nature strip be good, for Avocado Street?
Unfortunately, the car has to go.
Plant between other trees after some pruning?
Fuerte ?

Hi these are observations re avos in Melbourne..We have Hass and Fuerte planted next to one another this is their 3 rd summer and 2nd year fruiting the fuerte flowers first and is one huge mass of flowers where even the leaves die and fall off over 3 weeks or more and the hass in the last 2 weeks of the fuerte. Once the fruit has set and indeed most happens when the hass is in flower so they do cross pollinate, the leaves grow back in abundance...this is when we make sure the plants do not dry out and are foliar fed regularly.
the fuerte is HUGE (4m and bushy) and has about 200+ fruit and the hass is much more open and has a few dozen. The fuerte are very big about 500g each and are ready in Melbourne to start eating in winter and finishing early summer whereas the hass are later and it would be about now that the last ones would drop. cheers

200+ fruit? Wow, that's amazing.

How wide is the spread of the fuerte?
