Is This Plant Self Pollinating?

Reed Avocado is self-fertile, but the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second tree.

Description

Persea americana

Reed is the largest avocado variety and it is also considered to be the best-tasting. The fruit can easily weigh over a pound and the flavor and texture are both superior. Reed avocados have green skin and buttery yellow-Green that does not discolor when the fruit is cut open. The fruit is sensitive and not widely grown commercially, so the Reed avocado is an ideal choice for a home orchard.

Planting & Care

Avocados like fast-draining organic soil. Avocado trees prefer full sun but young trees need some protection from hot 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. They are also sensitive to cold and may require proection from frost. Avocados are often alternate bearing and the fruit crop will be larger if the tree is planted with a second avocado tree.
