I forgot to add. The fruit stays green. They dont go black like the hass you buy in coles or woolies. And the fruit gets biggest in april. I have been to bunnings and had a look at their different avacados. I am thinking it might be a Wurtz going by the leaf sizes and how they hang when they are new. But im still not sure. My work friends love how much and how big the fruit is but i have never been able to tell them what it is.
Thanks again.

G'day ell, it's probably just another 'seed-grown' avo. I wouldn't worry about about a name for it, as there are millions of no-name avos, but they usually all taste good! Enjoy.

Hi Brendan. If i were to get a seed from the tree and try and grow it how long before the seedling starts to fruit. I heard it can take 7 years. Would it be better going and gettng a graft?

Hi Ell as Breddan says it is likely a seedling, you can check for a graft scar but at that age it is sometimes difficult to detect. The characteristics you mentioned of smooth green skin and earlier ripening suggest a lot of Mexican highland genetics such as Wurtz or Bacon but a Hass seedling could also go this way especially if the dad was green skinned. Make sure you let them stay on the tree for a few months after they get full size as avocados taste and have texture like rubber if picked to early.
