Avocados hass vs lamb hass - Potty Bob, I've heard great things about Maluma Avocado Trees, and would love to get my hands on one. The fruit quality is supposed to be on par or better than Hass, but bigger, and with a better flesh to seed ratio, and come on earlier in the season by a..Liked Answer 1854 days 20hrs

Avocados hass vs lamb hass - Hi Davewastech, I would also choose Lamb Hass over regular Hass. The tree is more compact has better fruit set and is more resistant to sunburn. I have three of them in large pots. We have Mediterranean fruit flies in Perth and they don’t touch the a..Liked Answer 1893 days 19hrs
Huge avocado - Late reply to Andy11, the giant variety grown on Tamborine Mt is called Anaheim. A local grower enters the big ones at the yearly Ag.show, and the biggest weigh close to a kilo. Sometimes they are available at the weekly local growers shed on sundays (usu..Liked Question 1931 days 12hrs
Mexicola avocado - Just be careful re buying scions from overseas..... It maybe that Avocardo wood is not allowed to be imported..... You can't import Mango scionwood.... I would check first before spending dollars for an item I maybe can't get into the country. If you do c..Liked Answer 2171 days 14hrs
Mexicola avocado - I got some scion a few years ago from Ann and managed to get a couple of grafts to take. The trees are only about a meter high, but are very healthy. Interesting to note that they are in the early stages of flowering too, even though I am down south in Vi..Liked Answer 2171 days 15hrs

Huge avocado - We absolutely love Avo season here on our certified organic farm and actually planted our first lot of Post office trees from Birdwood about 10 years ago now. We must admit that in regards to Avocados the Post Office's taste, texture and over quality real..Liked Answer 2188 days 22hrs
Holiday avocado in australia - Holiday (XX3) is just hype. Lamb Hass and Sir Prize Hass are better in almost every way. They are also trees that are semi-dwarf. Yields are better and tree growth healthier. SPH is particularly good in flavour and pulp ratio (83%). It is also a B-type. ..Liked Question 2234 days 23hrs

Avocado noela - Thanks Lissa, Yep, I did reach out to Daleys directly, and sadly they said it could well be years before they have stock of the Noela Avocado again. While we wait... Anyone here have a Noela avocado tree or pictures of the fruit? Would be awesome to..Liked Question 2363 days 21hrs
Growing avocado in melbourne - Hi Deanna, any chance of getting a couple of seeds of your avos, say if & after you do get a crop? Ta. I have 10 avo trees, half are seed-grown and half are grafted. Maybe we can swap some seeds of the seed-grown avos if you like? Photo is of a large s..Liked Answer 2531 days 19hrs
Growing avocado in melbourne - Dave the cold wont hurt them even when tiny unless your seeing below 0c. Probably aim to plant them any time after August 15th. But once you reach that date the soon the better, the faster the roots can develop in the first season in the ground the better..Liked Question 2540 days 9hrs
Avocado growth rate - Your Avocado is 1000% perfectly healthy, the old leaves turn yellow and fall with the new growth every year. Exactly the same theory as leaves turning yellow/red in the Autumn as the tree reabsorbs the nutrients. Deficiencies or excess salt in Avocados do..Liked Answer 2586 days 9hrs

Lamb hass avocado1 - Lamb has definitely a smaller grower. There is a PowerPoint on the web somewhere with some good info about lamb hass. I'll try to find it. Some avo farmers I spoke to recently didn't rave about the fruit ( they had both tasted it) . I'm growing one in ..Liked Question 2729 days 7hrs
