Description

Persea americana 'Hass'

The Hass avocado is the standard by which all other Avocados are judged. The classic dark green, bumpy skin turns black as it ripens. The creamy, inner flesh is delicious sliced on sandwiches, cut into salads or making the finest guacamole, which is the hallmark of this culinary delight. It is said that over 80% of all commercially grown Avocados are the Hass. Not as cold hardy as other avocados but more and more showing up in the more protected colder areas of zone 9. the Hass is an A type flower but in colder climates is often self-fruitful. it is always a good idea to pair up a B type flowering Avocado like Bacon or Fuerte just for insurance sake.

Planting & Care

Avocados like fast-draining organic soil. Avocado trees prefer full sun, but young trees need some protection from hot afternoon sun until they develop dense foliage. Water avocados on a regular basis during warm seasons. Avocados do not like cold damp soil and can easily develop root rot if they remain wet for long periods. If poor drainage is suspected plant on a mound or raised bed 12 to 24 inches tall. They are also sensitive to cold and may require protection from frost. Avocados are often alternate bearing, and the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second avocado tree. Avocados can get to be quite tall but can be held to below 10 feet with summer pruning.
