ENJOY FREE SHIPPING ON ALL PRODUCTS

Fuerte Avocado (Persea americana)

Delivery Approx October or earlier 
Fuerte Avocado is of a medium-to-large size, elongated and pear-shaped, with a thick, yellow, slightly oily flesh.

Its deliciously rich, creamy flavor is praised in particular for its nutty undertones often likened to hazelnut, and a finish that’s quite clean, almost grassy in nature. This avocado is a green-skinned variety with darker speckles, meaning it does not darken as it ripens; instead, ripeness can be judged when the avocado gently yields to pressure.

Plant is Type B, 2+ years. More advance plants are also available.

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
