Wurtz Avocado

    3 responses

TimJoh starts with ...
I've grown single Wurtz avocados in Perth and Dunsborough selected because of small size. At 7yo neither had produced more than a couple of fruit per year. Replaced with Hass and Lamb Hass at Dunsborough which have both produced heavy crops but largely biennial at 4yo. Bacon at 3yo has a couple of fruit.

Our experience with Wurtz has not been great either. Ours is just over 7 years old and is yet to hold a single fruit to maturity. This year we have a good crop on the tree but based on past experience many of those will drop.

It is also very susceptible to sunburn. Pinkerton has been great for us and we just planted a Lamb Hass.

According the AGWA Bulletin on avocados, boron deficiency may be the cause of fruit drop particularly on sandy soils. I just checked my Hass and notice that there has been substantial fruit drop in the size range 2-5mm. Know why I'm not a farmer!!

Ours are all next to each other in the same soil so I don't think its that, also I have seen with other growers on youtube that have many varieties that the wurtz displays this behavior.
