Zutano avocado is a heavy bearer of flavorful, smooth skinned green fruit. The Zutano is self fertile, performing well in both coastal and inland climates. You will enjoy your avocados December to January from a cold hardy tree, taking temps down to 26°’s. Be sure to plant your avocado tree in soil that is loose, rich and well draining. Keep soil moist, but never soggy. Protect tree from constant winds. For those in extreme summer climates, white water based latex paint applied to the trunk will minimize sun scald. We ship all of our avocado trees shipped potted in soil to ensure a healthier start 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.
