Reed avocados are produced from an attractive tree that is upright, producing heavily both along the coast and inland. Frost tender tree is self fertile. Enjoy your fresh avocados June through November. Full sun or light shade. Be sure to carefully plant in soil that is loose and well draining. Shipped potted in soil for best possible results when planted in yard or garden. See frequently asked questions below for further planting instructions.
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.
