Edward3 says... [1554 days 19hrs ago]
Initially I had it in a pot and the top half died. So I put it in the ground and it recovered, and that's when I got 1 fruit. It seems to be very happy now and is growing well.

Dwarf Avocado - Pinkerton (A) 10/10

000Troy0001's Edible Fruits
Update: 77 days 8hrs

Comments: -

Flowered in the first year of planting. Grafted dwarf pinkerton bought here at Daleys.

 

I love it because I love Avocado's :) This variety is thriving in my garden coastal area of Southeast Qld. I planted it on top on the ground,  before I did plant it I put gypsum and  heaps of organic matter into the soil below. I sat the plant on top of the soil and used  two bags of high quality organic garden mix, around and under the plant. I placed the avocado between two golden cane palms to help shade it from the fierce summer heat. Normal weekly watering, sometimes I make it two weeks before watering depends on the weather. It's been care free and it's just doing it's thing - growing nicely..........

Update - Saturday 11 and sunday 12/02/2017 was very hot 40. The next two days 13/14 -02 -2017 hot blowy winds. The 13/02/2017 it rained about 3 mm at night. The plant is really floppy at the top and droopy now. I have seen this before when the tree is stressed out. I usually leave it and it comes good, will see this time. I am currently using a cane to straighten the top of the floppy portion, will see how it goes (the plant is surrounded by stakes and secure). The colour of the plant is dark green and healthy- apart from the precious thing being stressed. It's in shade but the wind and heat is taking it's toll (still blowing hard) for now, soil is wet but not overly so. Will update. Avocado feeling not so stressed today 15/02/2017 and has started to straighten up, winds slowed heat reduced, haven't watered. It has put on a great growing spurt since been plant bit over six months ago - near seven foot tall now. Trunk skining compared to height - stakes needed else will fall at this stage. Fertilised recently with 10-10-10 osmocote bought from US. You probably won't find 10-10-10 in Aus.

White Sapote - Lemon Gold (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 96 days 19hrs

Comments: - Scary tree because it wants to grow into a giant here. That's interesting because it behaved totally differently 700km north of here. Doesn't have any leaf drop here either. Wishing I had planted it somewhere else now, and had to cut down the second tree next to it because they were taking over. The roots are invasive so don't plant near pipes, walls etc...
Apart from that - it's dead easy to grow in our climate, is not at all fussy about the soil, the water, the winter - or bothered by pests/diseases. The fruit needs to bagged against Mediterranean fruit fly and the parrots and possums...
The fruit is beautiful - texture a bit like avocado and the flavour of lemon meringue pie, to me. Skin can be eaten also. 
Self fertile and a good cross pollinator. If only the fruit were bigger and more numerous.
I have to hack this tree back by 50% every 2-3years.

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Any balanced fruit tree fertiliser I have around.

Feijoa (Cutting) 7/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 4hrs

Comments: - Acca sellowiana. Sadly it's almost impossible to get named varieties in WA, especially now there is the myrtle rust problem and quarantine bans. So we are stuck with generic "non name" plants - which don't produce very impressive fruit. 
The tree is easy to grow but can take some time to start flowering and fruiting - seems to vary for different people/plants and locations. Is prone to scale and sooty mould if grown in too much shade and/or damp conditions, here. 
It's not bothered by the lime in our bore water.

Planted: 2014

Height 2.5 metres

Growing: In the Ground

First Fruited: 5 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Slow release organic chook manure pellets. Little and often.

Avocado - Hass (A) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 98 days 5hrs

Comments: - Easy to grow. Lovely fruit. Self pollinating (but way better now we have a bee hive also) We harvest after winter - around November, as the fruit tastes so much better after the cold weather and it's water content drops. A great choice for a backyard tree, along with Reed. 
I apply a lot of varied types of mulching materials, including logs/wood, like in the photo. There is evidence that with appropriate mulching we can encourage increased growth of the beneficial fungi in the soil - which can help outcompete any pathogenic fungi. This is very helpful for avocados.




Planted: 2013

Height 6 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 4

First Fruited: 3 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Pruned By: 30% in

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Acid lovers, little and often, alternating with slow relase organic chook manure pellets.

Pest Control: Netting against parrots etc, rarely some copper sulphate sprays for Sooty blotch (note: not the same as Sooty Mold) on the trunk and branches.

Organic Status:Partially Organic

Question: When do other warm-temperate growers prune their Hass trees? References suggest immediately after fruit set, in cooler areas? (will have to sacrifice some fruit of course)

Dwarf Avocado - Wurtz (A) 5/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 3hrs

Comments: - Not that fussed on this tree. It's droopy and dense growth is not good for air circulation through the canopy and it doesn't seem to set a lot of fruit as yet. The fruit is the more watery type, thin skin. 

Fruiting Months November

Planted: 2015

Water Given in: Spring

Pruned By: 10% in Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Acid lovers, little and often

Question: Does anyone get a decent crop from this variety? 
We have a Type B nearby and a bee hive - but it still doesn't set many fruit, especially compared to the Hass and Reed?

Avocado - Reed (A) (Grafted) 10/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 3hrs

Comments: - I love this tree - the fruit is amazing and even better if you let them hang on the tree for an extra month or two. Buttery, nutty, creamy and huge. A lovely handsome tree - very vigorous and fruits prolifically. Highly recommend and tolerates cool weather no problems here.
We harvest ours from Christmas onwards. Our fruits won First Prize at one of the country Ag shows last season too.
They grow well in our sand that has been improved with the clay plus, fine coir, compost and lots of OM - which makes the rich organic loam that they particularly need to thrive.

Question: I am wondering if Reed is self fertile perhaps? I have seen a large tree, grown in isolation, producing heaps of fruit?

Avocado - Fuerte (B) (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 4hrs

Comments: - It's a Type B and easy to grow. It flowers a bit too early in our cooler climate so fruit set is not great and a few are cocktail avocados. I planted it for cross pollinating our Type A's - but it tends to flower a bit earlier than all of them. 
It is a very vigorous and spreading tree, be warned. This pic is ours at 4yrs old.
Sand improvement is really important here, for strong healthy growth and good fruiting. I use plenty of Clay Plus, fine coir and a good quality compost (make sure the compost pH is not alkaline before adding it) and lots of mulchy things - even large pieces of our fire wood/logs, half buried under the canopy and drip line, as avocados have shallow feeder roots that need protecting. Their leaf litter stays where it falls and I use a complete fertiliser that has trace elements/minerals added.
It's important that their topsoil remains moist in our summers - so this can mean watering daily in a heatwave. Drainage is not an issue in our deep sands, which is a bonus for avocados, being prone to root rots due to "wet feet"

Dwarf Custard Apple - Tropic Sun (Grafted) 8/10

Amanda's Edible Fruits
Update: 100 days 16hrs

Comments: - This is our very first fruit, but the tree has been flowering for the past 2yrs. Seems to have some trouble self pollinating so I may have to assist next time. It's almost totally deciduous in our winter here. It's growing strongly and is in a large raised bed facing north - in our pool area which has a 6ft brick wall around it - so a nice microclimate in winter and summer.

Planted: 2014

First Fruited: 4 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Hand Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Balanced Acid lovers alternating with slow release organic chook manure pellets, little and often during the growing season. Sulphur in early spring if needed.
