Avocado tree

    9 responses

Jose Luis starts with ...
I want to get an Avocado tree or do I need two? From what I have read the best variety for us due to height would be the Wurtz which can be harvested around August thru to October.
My question is which variety would be best suited as a cross pollinator as a "B" type which would also be in flower around the same time as the Wurtz variety.

Thanks. This is reassuring but.....
I wonder if the number of fruit would increase with a pollinator.
Mind you I would be happy with four fruit if that is what can be expected from a first year of the tree bearing fruit.

hi,
I have since planted a sharwill, secondo and hass which will hopefully mean more fruit in the coming years.
The wurtz is currently heading towards 3m high and has quite a droopy weepy nature. I looked at the fuerte clip daleys have on youtube and i thought that they looked like compact trees also compared to others.. one day i hope to grow one of these.
Its all just testing them out at the moment and i have in the back of my mind that they can have a tantrum at any point and die....that would be very sad though.

I am curious about the fruit on the wurtz and i am wondering how long does fruit hang on the tree. At the moment in feb the fruit is probably just over half the mature size..will it really take until august- october to fully mature? it seems like a really long time.

Dont be misled - A Fuerte Avo grows very big - I have one I planted in Richmond near melb City and is about 5 x 8mt wide - possums eat it to bits on top - If you want a more compact Avo go for Lamb Hass or Pinkerton?

Possums....
We have a number of fruit trees that really get devastated by possums. Our persimmon was loaded with fruit this year and not a single one managed to reach maturity. The only fruit they seem to leave alone until they get really large is the cherimoya or custard apple. They get into the bananas, figs, guavas, nectarines etc.
Maybe there is a spray for pussums and maybe rats. The wife says they are cute and they have to eat something except they certainly do not share and eat everything.

Birdwood were selling Lamb Hass - but since all the farmers have removed a poor crop now are setting up Avo Farms - seedlings are being directed to them and not to retail - $5+ Avos and profits are the reason why - but they wont be producing for 4 or 5 years and maybe will be $8 each plus then and I will have more than I can eat I hope.

Nurseries around here have heaps of Lamb Hass. Such a poor crop this year. most have dropped crops at half size or larger, which would normally hold. Reed is the only real hope this year it seems :(
