Multi Planting Avocado

    12 responses

Mr Eco starts with ...
Hi, I have a 2.8m high trails I would like to multi plant 2 Avocado varieties grafted together to gain all year round fruit. They will need to grow no more than 1200mm wide and can be about 3m wide. I'm in Bendigo so frost is a concern also. Is this possible or am I mad? Thanks

I don't like your chances. You might get some fruit someday on your 2.8m trellis, but no-one gets fruit all-year-round, even in the tropics, and in Bendigo the best you can hope for is the odd fruit in a good year.

I had 3 avocado trees in Melbourne Brunswick West with 1-2 fruits per year per tree at random times.

They were on a south-facing bright Mediterranean wall. No frost.

Please do plant your avocado trellis no matter what people think. The wait and delight is worth it. Maybe climate change will reach Bendigo by then and they'll boom.

Try passionfruit vines in between.

There are a few dwarf Avo varieties, which might suit you better. These grow into compact trees, basically the nodes,buds on the twigs are very close together. Choosing different vars with wide spaced maturity periods will give you a better spread across the year.
Also the varieties holding period of the fruit on the tree is important. You can probably season extend by picking some early, and leaving some on the tree. Another option is to multi graft one tree, rather than plant two together.
Also think about when Avos are less available/more expensive and try to fill that gap with trees that fruit then.

I read that in Indonesia they have avocadotree's who fruit all year.

Also they fruit within 3 years when grown from seed. I have posted it on this forum somewhere, the link that is.

3 years from seed sounds a bit fanciful. West Indian types that can survive may fruit a couple of times a year near the equator Mexicans and Guatemalans wouldn't survive a year let alone fruit.

My multigrafted avocadotree grows like crazy. it has 4 varieties now...the last one that i grafted onto it is hass from Spain from sent scionwood..

That hass i also have on Peterson avocado (grafted tree) but that scion won't grow at all for over a year now.

I will graft Pinkerton onto it as well one of these days.

The big tree better fruits soon because my pulasan is waiting for it's spot.

I would have suggested a Mexicola Avocado, originating from Mexico, for growing in Victoria as everything I have read and heard about it states it as being the most cold tolerant variety. Some information cites it as being hardy down to minus 8 deg C but I can't imagine that would be possible.

But someone here on the thread says that Mexican types can't survive or fruit down here which seems to be contradictory so now I'm confused. Even this video claims that Mexicolas can withstand or bounce back after a "hard frost" so please confirm if this is correct or not.Thanks.

Hi mate just wondering how I go about buying some avo scion wood or seeds from Spain or better yet America? I want to get some Mexican cold hardy varieties. I’m thinking of getting some land in dunolly and hoping it’s warm enough there for them to do okay. I am in Ballarat and so far my 4 avos are doing okay but I’m having issues with pests eating my leaves and mites etc.
I can’t find Mexicola or Lila or those Mexican types in Australia and I would love to be able to grow them as I know they can hack some cool winters.

Do you know where to get Mexicola from in Australia? Or where would I purchase one from overseas? I have tried and most places don’t sell to Australia.

How are your avocado trees going in Bendigo? I am in Ballarat lol and I am also growing them too. I may move to dunolly area soon and hoping they will do better there. I just worry about the frosts but I will be covering mine when there is a frost.

@becrule35
Usually live branches are not allowed to be sent to Australia due to bio-security. If you are lucky, that must be in winter and through express mail. Yet, some types do not necessarily perform well in Australia, not to mention some hottie avocados are within breeders' rights.
Unless you pretend to be muscular, and blend into fruit-pickers, then back out within days and carry some twigs from avocado orchards... If you manage to make it, plz sell me some branches.
