Want fresh avocados picked from your own tree. Even if you live outside avocado country, it can be done. We are shipping Stewart avocado trees potted in soil over 3 feet tall, a great variety for colder climates. It is an avocado variety hardy to the low to mid 20s for short duration. Stewart is a more compact growing tree, giving you many possibilities for container use. Your avocados will be good tasting, about 4-8 oz, with thin black skin, ripening September to November. Avocado trees prefer loose, rich, consistently moist soil. The Stewart is self fertile, and available for immediate shipping.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any frost hardy avocado varieties?
Stuart Avocado can actually take well below freezing for short durations, and frequently tolerate temps in the upper 20's and low 30's. Do plant in a protected spot and shield from cold winter winds.

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.
