Holiday avocado in Australia?

    11 responses

Kath5 starts with ...
Has anyone seen holiday (aka XX3) avocado trees for sale in Australia or is it only in the US so far?

They sound like a pretty good backyard variety (small tree, big fruit) but I can't figure out where to get one. Probably doesn't help that I'm in WA...

I think you may be mistaking Sir Prize now being available - has an interesting history about a private backyard grower with a sport he planted and at only 1.5mt crawled under and found at back a huge Avo - he thought was different and got a patent on it - finding that avo was a surprise hence the name. Dont know who has it for sale tho but is somewhere in southern Qld.

No, Holiday is the one that I want to know about, that is a different variety. Though I'll keep Sir Prize in mind, it sounds good too.

I did some research and Sir Prize grows into a pretty big tree Vs Holiday which has dwarfing tendency - SP is not for your regular yard tree - google more on Trop Fruit forum - They are easily available as grafted in NSW - Im growing a couple seeds i got a few months ago - found the fruit not that good really or they got picked too soon - I think Gwen is the one to get and Mexicola as its very cold hardy.

echinopora- that's true, that's where I got mine from last year.
Mago Mike- I would def head over and get those last 2 trees as they seem to be the only nursery(retail) that sells them. And it doesn't sound like they will again, but u never no. I think they def sound like a great variety

Holiday (XX3) is just hype. Lamb Hass and Sir Prize Hass are better in almost every way. They are also trees that are semi-dwarf. Yields are better and tree growth healthier. SPH is particularly good in flavour and pulp ratio (83%). It is also a B-type.
Lamb and Holiday are both 71% flesh, rendering Holiday's much larger fruit essentially of no advantage.
But why people want massive fruit is not something I understand. Just involves more storage and preservation issues.

$500 yikes!

But good to know it is in the country. Hopefully the price will come down over time.
