Thank you everyone for your replies. I think I'll let her grow until about 8 to 9 ft and see then.

I topped a few avocado trees low and don't like the results unlike topping mangos real low.  As an example I have a Reed that wants to remain in a permanent goal post shape. I keep down to 10' with annual topping but the shoot in the center that I'd like to become dominant won't.  The thick scaffold branches want to dominate.  I think JF's advice of waiting until it's 8-9' tall is sound.  You can always go back and give it a haircut later.

Where's Waldo?  :D



Mark you took the words out of my mouth. Avocados develop their own shape itís best you prune them when you want to control size. Avocados do not need any pugging and like Mark  I discourage it.
The first two pix are Pinkerton all but a few fruits are within reaching distance easy to harvest. The tree is 6 year old and 10í. 3 pix is sir Prize and Holiday fruits overlapping
Holiday is a true dwarf nothing needed. Sir Prize is a monster good luck

Mine are slow pokes.  Slower than every other type of avocado.  They don't seem to need any size control.

you have space, if i don't keep growth in check I would be swallowed up by the jungle.

Calostro is a seedling of AP. Jumbo AP is a sport different varieties

Pinkerton is not a fast grower here in CA.  You can probably just shape it.  I wouldnt pug any avovado trees.  Maybe top it when its 8 or 10 feet tall and then shape the sides how you want.

Its fast here Brad sort of compact but you can you can prune each year and still get tons of fruits next year.



Here are two great varieties overlapping Sir Prize and Holiday this will put to rest Carlo's doubts

Yes Simon, there are alot of turpentines out here. I grew manga blanca which I grafted over because of the low quality fruit; it produce small round fibrous fruits.

The swapmeet I go to is Golden West College in Huntington Beach.
I haven't seen any $4 cherimoya root stock lately.
Merchants sell multi-grafted tree there.

Easier of JF sell you one, so you don't need to search.
He won't sell me one. But you can try.

What are we talking about here fellas....this is a Birula, Lisa thread

The flesh around the skin is my favorite part. It tastes like it has the most flavor components, turpenes I suppose. If you get too close to the skin, there can be some sort of natural component in the skin that tickles the back of my throat and makes me want to cough.

The good thing about these flavor grenade type mangos is that a little bit goes a long way and in the case of Sweet Tart, the fruit grows in clusters and are often relatively small. The Sweet Tart variety can even hold a decent amount of fruit in a pot although it will need judicious pruning.

People that have a basement, balcony or small patio can grow this variety and the small mangos will go a long ways in terms of not needing a lot of flesh to be satisfied.

Simon

You get it about scraping the mango skin! Great sweet tart testimony and accounting.  Lets talk  May 2018 when mangoes are looking good here

My good friend Zands, while you are waiting we continue on until January.

Cumbe is considered, by Peruvians, to be the best cherimoya or annona in the world. My tree is 3 years old and so far it seems very promising. We have a lot of top tiers moyas so itís very difficult for an anona to break in the upper echelon. Cumbe and La Habra Sun appear to be strong contenders and top tier anonas
