Ripens from September to October Stuart is a Mexican type avocado that is fairly cold-hardy, doing well into the mid 20's.

Planting & Care

Avocados like fast-draining organic soil. They do not like cold damp soil and can easily develop root rot if they remain wet for long periods. Avocado trees prefer full sun but young trees need some protection from the hot afternoon sun until they develop dense foliage. Water avocados on a regular basis during warm seasons. Mulch 2 to 4 inches deep out 3 feet from the canopy to keep roots cool during the summer. Avocados are also sensitive to cold and may require protection from frost. Avocados can be alternate bearing , to improve your crop and cover you on the years when there is a light crop plant different flower type, A or B to help improve your fruit set and plant a second avocado tree nearby.
