Hall is 1930's vintage from Florida and is Guatemalan x West Indian.In theory it is more tropical than all the standard Guatemalans in Australia and is decades ahead of its time if it is here. We are still going through our shepard, sharwil and hass phase.

Bad news those West Indian (actually coastal Mexican) type Avocados. They maybe huge but you may as well stick with watermelon, has about the same amount of oil :P. I guess if you live in the tropics it's the only Avocado that will grow, so then fair enough

Hall is about 16%.Reed,shepard and wurtz grow pretty well in my yard in Cairns and it is pretty tropical. Equatorial areas can't grow Mexicans or even Guatemalans and the tropical lowlands can't grow some Guatemalans like bacon or any Mexicans like hass. Some WI hybrids have oil% well in the 20's.

The pure strain growing on the Eastern coast of Mexico (native) don't have much oil at all. But they pretty much grow on the beaches so must be very salt tolerant.

I bet Hass tops 30% oil down here, it's very rich after 20 months on the tree

Carmen is just a bud sport of hass from mexico in the 1980's.It got to Australia in 2010 so should be an A and it is really a small hass with a different flowering time.

2-4 months before Hass would put it right in the normal Mexican race Avocado ripening time for me. Same time as things like Fuerte

Thanks GuyS!! But Iv swopped over from Hall to now my favourite!! Iv only just discovered what the main avo that I was eating when I lived in South Africa was... Edranol. Soooo Now im going to be persuing that!!.. Since moving here.. The avos are nice but the South African Edranol is DIVINE to kill for!! best flavour ever.. How would it do in Mackay and Cairns??? I would only plant avos above ground in a raised bed.

My husband used to travel to South America regularly for work and goes on and on about the avocados. Would love to grow an Edranol if we could get our hands on one. We would only have room for a large container plant unfortunately. I know nothing about growing Avocados. Do they do well in containers? Would they fruit in Brisbane?

Edranol is good for Bris. They could be kept in a large pot. They have a tendancy to grow tall and narrow, but you can keep them in check with good container culture. Birdwood ofen sells them through bunnings in supertubes. Last season it was their main avocado line, but now i see that wurtz has become the main cultivar stocked.

Hi Cassowaryhill, I have an Edranol growing here, would you believe Robyn from Kirisit Nursery ordered it for me 2 years ago. It did bear one fruit, but eventually fell off and the possums ate it :-( Should have better luck when it gets a bit older.

I have two seedlings of this avo I grow if you would like them? They self-sow under the canopy. If you'd like them, contact me at: bitquicker at bigponddotcom. This one was just under 600g, and tastes better than Hass! Yes it does have a large seed, but the flesh is thick & very tasty :-)
