Sharwil Avocado (Persea americana)
The Sharwil avocado is known for its unique taste and characteristics. It has a rich, creamy texture with a subtle, nutty flavor. The flesh is buttery and smooth, making it a popular choice among avocado enthusiasts. Unlike some other avocado varieties, the Sharwil is not overly oily, which contributes to its distinct taste. In terms of taste we rated Sharwil as 9/10!
In terms of the plant itself, Sharwil avocado trees are evergreen and can grow up to 30 feet tall. The plant however will take a long time to grow that high, if you prune the plant to 1.5-2m high on yearly basis the plant will remain short and more manageable. They have glossy, dark green leaves and produce small, greenish-yellow flowers. The fruit typically matures in late summer to early autumn, and it's known for its longish pear-like shape and green flesh closer to the skin and with medium size fruit. The fruit will remain green even when it’s ripen. Sharwil avocado trees are favoured by growers for their high-quality fruit and reliable yields when properly cared for.
Overall, the Sharwil avocado offers a delightful combination of creamy texture and subtle, nutty flavor that makes it a sought-after variety among avocado lovers.
