A Lifetime of Fruit, Anywhere in the US
Hass Avocados are the most popular avocados because of their incredible taste.
Now, you don't have to live in a tropical climate to grow your own avocados. No matter where you live, you can pot up your tree in a container on your patio!
Just bring it indoors during the cold winter months. This ensures that your Hass Avocado Tree will thrive, no matter what state you live in!
There's nothing like the taste of fresh, home-grown avocados... and you'll never have to pay supermarket prices again.
The skin of the Hass is much thicker, darker and slightly rough compared to other avocados and the pulp is a creamy off-white in color.
These trees are self-fertile, so you only need one for pollination. However, you'll grow more fruit if you buy them in pairs.
If you get just one tree, here's a tip to increase fertilization: brush the open flowers each day with a paint brush or cotton ball. (Once you do, you'll see the pollen residue on the brush.) The next day, brush all of the flowers with the same brush or cotton ball to pollinate your tree. After a few days the flowers will drop and you should have a few little avocados set.
Once set, the large fruit take several months to mature. Then, just pick at maturity and let them ripen on your counter!
These trees are a fun choice because you don't have to be a master gardener to grow your own fruit! Just plant, pollinate and pick!
