Are the black blotches on the branches of my wurtz dwarf avocado tree normal or is it some kind of fungus? The tree looks healthy.

Hi there. I took some pics of mine fornyou to compare. Mine are 3 yrs old. The one with the darkest bark gets the the most cold wind. They look a bit shabby at the minute but will go crazy soon. Hope this helps

Nice to see your avo flourishing here Ben, there's a gigantic avocado tree down the road from me that does the same with it's leaves, they just die off during winter then come back, unsure of the variety though.

I'm going to try and grow a Dwarf Lamb Hass, so will be interesting to see if it survives Adelaide, not sure how cold tolerant it really is.

What pear varieties are you growing out of curiosity? If it's easier, just hit me up at peterantoniw@msn.com, as the forum's a bit delayed.

Ben - the dark blotches on your Avo is Sunburn - got too hot when facing sun thru the day - bit late to fix but paint with a dilute water based white or light colour interior say Ceiling paint as a sunblock - even I forgot some branches up high last year.

Apply on any exposed branches - the reason it happens is because Avos are an understory forest tree and are shaded when young and get alot of wind protection too.

It does work and if you do on damaged branches too the cambium may rebuild itself - like my cold affected mango branches did last year and have almost regrown cambium.

Its a good time to paint before next new flush occurs after flowering.

Hi Everyone,
I just bought Wurtz avocado (A) type because of small space in my backyard. Can someone let me know whether it requires other avocado plant to bear fruit ? Or does it fruit without other pollinator variety? Also I would like to know whether it’s best to plant in wine barrel or ground. Suggestions will be very much appreciated. Thanks

Chethan349 I think this variety can bear on its own being an A type but in my experience they take a long time to hold fruit even if you have other varieties like we do. This variety is also very susceptible to sunburn.

Our Wurtz is 6 years old now and is still yet to hold a fruit bigger than a 50c coin. In contrast our Pinkerton gave us fruit after 2 years and is unaffected by the sun, they are side by side.

I would plant it in the ground but be careful if you have clay soil. Growing fruit trees in pots long term is hard work.
