The Hass avocado is considered the absolute best, the fruit creamy and well flavored, a true delight to eat; now is your time to grow a tree of your own. From your tree you will enjoy fruit that has 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 is one that allows water to exit quickly and allow the return of a good oxygen level in the root zone. Plant in large container if your growing conditions are such that the tree needs to be pampered, whether a potential for cold temps in the winter or native soil that may not be the best. Place the tree on porch or patio….even a sunny deck if you like your trees close by. Pair with the Fuerte avocado to have fresh fruit over more of the calendar, each variety ripening at different times of the year. Your tree will be shipped potted in soil for best results when planted in yard or garden.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to prepare the soil in advance of planting an avocado tree?
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.

Any suggestions on the best way to irrigate a newly planted avocado tree?
Water well after planting, and then water such that the soil stays consistently moist, not soggy or dry. It is o.k. for the soil to be moist all the time, just not squishy soggy.

Any other tips?
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.
