Avocados are one of the wonderful fruits of summer. High in nutrition and flavor, nothing signals the start of summer like a delicious lime guacamole dip with tortilla chips.
Hass Avocados are oval shaped with a medium thick and pebbly green skin that darkens to a purplish black when fully ripe. The rich buttery flavor and smooth texture of Hass Avocados make them one of the most versatile fruits.
Fuerte Avocados are pear shaped with a medium thick and slightly pebbly green skin that darkens to a purplish black when fully ripe. After surviving the great freeze of 1913, it was given the name Fuerte, the Spanish word for “strong.” The Fuerte tree is one of the most cold-hardy varieties of avocado.
Avocado trees are more likely to produce a viable crop if a second Avocado tree is nearby. Hass Avocados are Type A and Fuerte Avocados are Type B. The other tree should be the type to complement the existing tree. For instance, if you are growing a Type A Avocado, Type B trees are recommended to help pollination.
Even when they are not fruiting, Avocado trees are beautiful tropical trees. As with other tropical fruits, Hass Avocado trees can be grown indoors, on balconies, patios, and limited-space gardens. Enjoy the attractive trees as ornamentals if you choose to plant your Hass Avocado trees in an indoor container!
