Avocado - Reed - grafted
Avocados are a sub-tropical/temperate rainforest tree. Reed is a heavy bearer of round fruit with a very good flavour. Fruiting age is in 2-3years. Best harvested September to December. It is a very upright grower up to 8m tall. The biggest enemy of the avocado tree is water logging. They should be planted in a well drained situation on a raised garden bed at least 30-40cm above natural ground level. Avocados are surface feeding and grow best with generous mulching in August and December. This helps maintain constant surface moisture and insulates the plants feeder roots from the hot sun.
