ENJOY FREE SHIPPING ON ALL PRODUCTS

Hashimoto Avocado (Persea americana)

Guatemalan variety. Large spheroid fruit with a thick pebbly skin and a small seed. The fruit size is from 420gms to 730gms. The fruit is green when ripe.

Habit - Avocado trees form a thick canopy giving dense shade with it's large, dark green, leathery leaves.

Pollination - Light yellow/green flowers appear in abundance on the end of the branches in spring. 'B' Type flowering where the female part opens in the afternoon on the first day for 2 to 3 hours then closes. The male part opens the morning of the second day. Hence cross pollination of two varieties helps in the warmer climates.

In the cooler climates opening and closing of the flower tends to overlap therefore making them more self-fertile. Bees and flies are the pollinators. Cross pollination with Hass and Reed will improve fruit set.

Harvest - Winter harvest
Most of the grafted Avocadoes plant will start flowering as early as 18 months when planted on the ground or in a planter box and given the right condition and care. 

Plant Care

Light

Plant in a warm sheltered position.

Water

Plenty of water around summer, less during winter. Never let the soil dry out or the roots to soak in water

Soil

Well-draining, mulch well to keep moist all year around. Prefer to be planted on the mound. Can’t tolerate clayish soil. Add scoria at the bottom of planter/pot for good drainage and some blood and bone in the hole prior to planting

Fertilizer

Every 4 weeks from spring to autumn. Love seaweed juice. Mulch and use any kind of fertilizer. Nitrogen hungry.  Give chicken manure 3 times a year  

Wind

Keep away from strong wind. Young or small plants will require protection cover to establish well. Stake the plant /branch for support

Frost

Frost tender when young, provide shade or cloth cover during winter. An exception is the Mexicola variety which is very frost tolerant

Fruiting

1-2 years for grafted and cutting grown. 4+ years from seedlings. Planting both A and B type improves fruit set. Plant flowers like lavender close by to encourage bees around

Pruning

Every 1st April for vigorous growth the following season

Really happy

Really happy with my two avocado trees (Hashimoto & Hass) . Strong plants and are already flowering a few weeks after I bought it.
Will buy from Exotica again in the future. Thanks
