AVOCADO TREES-“Arizona” Zone 8b

5 Gal and 7 Gal can not be shipped

· Avocados should be planted on high ground.

  • · They need adequate water but need good drainage. Tropical broadleaf but will not tolerate wet soggy soil.

· The trees “will” need to be protected from the cold for two to three years. As the tree matures, the green bark on the trunk will begin to turn brown.

· Start fertilizing young trees after one year of growth, using a balanced fertilizer such as 8-8-8 twice yearly.

· It is also recommended to protect young avocado trees from direct sun for the first year.

· One option is to paint the green trunk and main branches with a whitewash.

· You can also drape them with a shade cloth or light burlap sack over a wooden or PVC frame a foot or two above the tree.

· The trees should begin to bear fruit within 2 – 3 years. 3-5 Gal trees bear some fruit now

· Joey, Lila, Lula, and Arizona are just some of the cold hardy examples now 14-18 degrees

· Zone 8b
