A fantastic backyard variety that produces a large crop of rich, tasty avocados. It grows beautifully in a big pot! In a pot, its maximum height is likely to be around 2.5 metres, and when planted in the ground, it may reach 4 metres high. It has a gorgeous weeping appearance, and several planted in a row make a lovely, natural screen or separation between spaces whilst being productive, too.

Did You Know
Avocado trees can produce fruit with just one tree? They are essentially bisexual with both male and female flowers on the same tree, so with even just one tree planted it will give you fruit. You may have heard about Type A and Type B avocados. This refers to the times when the male and female flowers open and you can read more about the Avocado Pollination Types. There is no doubt however, that you will get more fruit if you have more than one avocado tree of the same Type - and more again if you have both an A Type and a B Type.
