Avocados: Why Is It Best to Grow Different Varieties?
Are you one of those who wonder why a 17 year old, healthy & vigorous avocado tree, isn't fruiting? Well, you are not alone. There are lots of reasons for this…And many people wonder why!
Why Mini Avocado Trees?
The "mini avocado trees" came along way back in 2003 -2005. The story is; some of the tiny trees in their original small nursery bags flowered, and I cross-pollinated them by hand, using a soft paint brush! Most of these trees - under 1 m high - produced so many fruitlets that I had to prune many of them to save the tree. Two or three fruit were left to grow, and of course as a nurseryman, I attended to them on a daily basis. Lo and behold! Small avocado trees with large and perfectly normal avocados hanging from them in just a few months! A guy from the local news paper got to see them. He was so pleasantly surprised and shocked that he exclaimed "mini avocado trees"! He published this novelty and - peopl like you - came along to, order! The name "mini avocado trees" stuck and I'm very grateful to him ... And, of course, folks like you. Thank You

Thousands of different avocado varieties are recorded. They are all either Type A or Type B flowering. The A variety flowers open female in the morning of day one. The flower closes around mid-day, and remains closed till mid-day next & then reopens as male. B varieties open as female in the afternoon of the first day, close in late afternoon, and re-open in the male phase, next morning. This is also very important in helping early & abundant yields, but one needs to complement it with more good practices.
To help all client-friends in their quest for the best results, we pledge, irrevocably, to give continued support and for as long as required.
