The Little Cado dwarf avocado tree will open up many possibilities for avocado lovers, fresh fruit now able to be produced well outside typical avocado growing regions, this tree easily being kept in a container for many years. Growing to only 8 to 10 feet tall, it can be maintained on deck or patio for a long time. The Little Cado, having both type A and type B flowers is considered self fertile and able to pollinate pretty much every other avocado variety. Best in loose, rich, well draining soil. The Little Cado’s shorter size makes it easier to protect if frost may be a problem. The fruit is medium sized, green, and good tasting. The tree fruits in the summer (May to Sept) when you can enjoy the avocados for picnics and the Fourth of July. If used in a container, plant in good quality potting soil only and don’t forget the drainage holes. The Little Cado bears young. We ship all of our trees potted in soil to ensure a healthier start when planted in orchard 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.

Can you recommend a good avocado variety if I do not have room in my yard for such a large tree?
Give the Little Cado a try. Good tasting fruit on a tree only growing to 8 feet or so. Fruit bears May to September, so available in the summer time for all your backyard picnics or patio parties.
