Avocados - Lumps in Flesh

    5 responses

Sort:
Tanya Rae starts with ...
I have many avocado trees growing at home. All growing exceptionally well. The problem is that the fruit have hard "stones" in them just under the skin. Some lumps actually split the skin open.

What is this and how do I treat it?

I have no idea,sorry Tanya, but would like to get information about avocados as well so thought i would join this discussion. Lucky you in FNQ, i'm south of melbourne. Some info says that the flowering of avos in cold climate is so confused that all trees are self fertile?? will X pollinators ensure more fruit? Does the A/B flower type matter? Any tips much appreciated.

Sounds like Fruit Spotting bug, they sting the fruit and leave a hard spot in the flesh just under the skin. Can be a troublesome pest with a lot of tropical fruit

Strangely I think I remember an occasional hard bit near the surface on my home grown Avos & we dont have those bugs here butttt will note anything on my crop in next few months - is a bit annoying in a store paid for Avo tho.

I'm sure the garden guru up here says the tree is lacking boron when this happens.
Be careful, it's easy to overdose boron.
