Hi Neds

The main avo variety growing in your area is Shepard (type B) which will adequately compliment your (type A) Reed avo pollination wise. Other good choices are Sharwill and Fuerte both type B's.

Happy gardening :-)

Not sure what you mean by 'would go well with' your Reed.

In my opinion, it would make sense to get a B type whose harvest period does not overlap with the Reed's. That way you will have avocadoes ripening for more months of the year. Therefore I think Shepherd would suit you well. Sharwil would be next best as winter fruiter, adjacent to the Reed season. Sir Prize and Edranol mature same time as Reed. Fuerte is very large tree and biennial bearer.

All trees flower at the same time of year, so you don't have to worry about that, if that's what your concern was.
