Avocados Arrived 4/17/19

We just received our Avocados. We have Bacon, Mexicola, Zutano, all of which are cold hardy for our area. Mexicola cross pollinates with Bacon or Zutano. Zutano and Bacon do not cross pollinate with each other. Trees are semi self fruitful but having A Mexicola with one of the other varieties for cross pollination will produce larger crops of fruit. All varieties produce fruit.

Avocados need good drainage and some afternoon shade in the hottest part of the summer.

We also have 5 Hass avocados. They are not cold hardy for our area but some people have had success if they are planted in an area that does not get hard freezes. If you want to try a Hass, you must find an area that is protected from freeze. Most normal areas around here are not good. Choose your location carefully if you want to grow a Hass avocado in our area.

Avocados are $36.00 each.

Our bare root fruit trees are all in. We are heeling in the standard size today and will be working on the semi-dwarf tomorrow. Shop early for the best selection.

Time for the first of three dormant spray applications.

Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentines Day are the three dates to remember for dormant spray applications on your fruit trees, The first application should be done this week or very soon after. As soon as the rain stops and the trees have lost their leaves. Use Liquicop mixed with Horticultural Oil or Neem Oil. Spray the entire tree. Spray all your deciduous fruit trees in your orchard to prevent leaf curl, reduce the chance of fireblight and kill overwintering insects. Healthier trees will be the result next spring.

Kind regards,
Jeff Rice
