Large sized fruit from a dwarf, self fertile tree....doesn't get any better than this. Try a Holiday Avocado in a large container for fresh, good tasting fruit just outside your door. The Holiday bears August to January.....approx Labor Day to New Year's, thus the origin of its name. Growth on this tree is to about 10 to 12 feet tall if never pruned, but can easily be kept pruned to desired size and shape. A type "A" variety hardy to about 30°s, so be sure to move the container to a more protected spot during cold winter nights, or create a cold frame over the tree if planted in the ground. The Holiday bears large, 15 to 30 oz fruit with excellent flavor. The avocados hold well on the tree. Shipped potted in soil to ensure a healthier tree when planted in yard or garden. Enjoy this 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.
