Why not El Perrado? It is from Miami to Seattle away from me and I haven't heard of it. Just looks like Hass and those stems should have been left on.
Tropical Fruit Discussion / Australia "Delcado" article

The article popped up for me probably by G scraping my browsing cookies on the frequency of reading TFF ;)

Interesting avocado being grown, maybe someone else here has heard of it. The web site also has articles about avocados and other fruit happenings in the world.

Another linked article,  the same fact [oils and hang time] I learned from here!!!

"But Mr Delroy's daughter Suzie, 25, said Delcados have a different flavour because they mature on the tree for much longer at 12 to 16 months. "
Congrats on your endeavor! I'd be happy to catch a flight over there for some durian one day.

This tree has a growth pattern where a lot of the new flush has multiple branches. I'm wondering if I should trim anywhere or just let it happen for awhile. I think the one lower branch should probably be reduced to just a few offshoots. Your thoughts?

With respect to size as stated above, in Florida these get quite large and are very vigorous.  Not a tree that will lend well to pot culture.  For seedlings, you will most likely need pots in the 100-500 gallon range (the larger the better) or they will become a rootbound mess and struggle.  Also as Thera stated, there are large fruited types and small fruited types (with the smaller being more common fir random plants and less desirable).

Thanks again, Thera

I will follow your lead and give it an eastern exposure ... I have brutal afternoon sunlight and I certainly don't want them to burn up.

Hi Poke,
I have read multiple posts from other Texas growers of the Manila T and they all have had survival down into the low 20s .. and one had it regrow after freezing to the ground.  I would plan on Keeping in pot until a couple years old, then covering on a really cold nite.

The seeds I got are quite fresh, and the germination rate is high, so if you keep a few in pots and plant at least one in ground, you will hedge against losing it in a freeze if we have a tough winter this year.

I also read that the more you prune, the more thorns will grow UGGGly

Hope this helps you make the decision to experiment !

These taste night and day better than AP by the way.  I had a AP tree and no one in the family like it so we top worked it.  This variety everyone here liked.
