Ever eaten a fresh Hass avocado…second to none! The fruit is creamy and well flavored, a taste that will captivate you from the first bite. Whether sliced on to salads or mashed into some of the best guacamole on the block, the Hass is one to always satisfy. This variety is the one most sought after by many of my clients. Avocado trees like soil that is loose and rich, a well draining soil allowing water to exit quickly and allow the return of a good oxygen level in the root zone. If planted in large container, it is easier to pamper the tree both below and above ground. Place the tree on porch or patio…even a sunny deck. Pair with a Fuerte, Bacon, Little Cado or Zutano for better pollination and fruit set. Shipped potted in soil for best possible results when planted in yard or garden.
Avocados like loose, rich, well draining soil. Blend any planting mix or potting soil into the dirt you take out of the hole prior to planting, and when placed back into the ground around the root ball, soil drainage and fertility will be improved. Avoid any manure based mix, as these have a tendency to be too salty.
Handle the root ball carefully, making sure you maintain its integrity. Plant such that the top of the root ball is even with the top of the ground. Protect from severe frost by moving indoors if necessary.
