Avocado Identity ??

    6 responses

Farouk starts with ...
Hello All

Happy Spring!

Could you please help identify my Avocado seedling ?

I cannot remember which type I planted, any help would be much appreciated.

Want to know what type to expect so I can plan it & grow it in ground.

Thank you

Hello Mark,

Yeah true spring is late September, but my garden speaks otherwise I have seen macadamia set fruit, mangoes in full bloom, stone fruits woken up from their sleep & the birds are going at it so are the cats ;)

I thought maybe an avocado enthusiast might be able to tell them apart the variety of avocado from the leaves or at least have a close guess as it's leaves are quite different from the common avocado and sort of softer, fluffy alittle, but I do understand would be extremely difficult as per your example.

Thanks for your reply, hope you have a fruitful growing season after all that rain.

Farouk - i was actually just having a lend of you - i always engrave the seed avo type on the cut top of the seed - if your only buying supermarket avos they will be a hybrid of say Hass and a pollinator - been discussed here alot already. Mangos wont set fruit below 10c so if you remove floret a new one will grow in December - i still have a 600g Palmer still hanging on to ripen when it warms up soon on tree.

I just realised I have a seedling Sapodilla growing too, any tips on grow it from your experience ? although seems that water & sun does it good, its quite happy & growing in its tiny pot at the moment, planning to put it in ground a year or two from now.

Farouk - the Palmer was just ok - sort of 3/4 ripe - but hey Palmers are usually avail in Feb - so was mine early or late??? Your Sapodilla seedling could take 8 to 10 years Vs a grafted one like mine above - Daleys had some Prolifics but price went up $10 when qty fell below 5 plants (lol - reverse discounting)

Ah nice early/late it's all good!

ah that's fine I'm happy to wait the years for the sapodilla, it will take a few more years till the front yard is finally ready for it to be planted.

thanks Mark, keep us updated with some summer harvest!
