Avocado - Hass (A) 10/10

**KG**'s Edible Fruits
Update: 1071 days 15hrs

Comments: - This was in the yard when we bought the property looking very bedraggled - knowing nothing of avocado, we just left it - and it grew like crazy. No idea how old, or what stock it was, but each year has set at least 50 fruit, and we have harvested at least 20 (the bush turkeys and chickens have been at the rest. Just built a chicken coop around it, to stop the bush turkeys and possums getting at it - am sure there will be enough to share with the chickens!

Planted: 2011

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Summer

After Fruiting

Question: is there any way to ripen the avocados off the tree? we lose the ones that fall to the ground to the chickens - but the ones we take off don't seem to ripen!
