Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Maxzoo's Edible Fruits
Update: 125 days 14hrs

Comments: -  Small size. Photo taken a year after planting- it has grown alot and definitely changed shape. It is a bit weepy compared to others. I picked the flowers off this year, maybe next year I will leave them on. I have an earth bag underneath it that drip waterers it most of the time and it seems happy. I have had a shade cloth over it but it seems happy enough without it on- no real sunburning or wilting going on yet (its only spring now..)
