Hass avocado in florida
« on: August 18, 2019, 09:35:04 PM »
My father planted this seedling hass about 8 years  ago, it fruited in two years. Then work forced a move for a few years and it was neglected and blown over by a hurricane. I came back this year and started to take care of it again. Then the chickens started to stay under it and coupled with the watering and chicken waste it really sprung to life. It taste just like a store hass avocado but with some sweetness. Thanks for reading.






Donít rush, take time and enjoy life and food.

Very interesting, can you post some pics on the flesh and interior of a cut fruit?

Might be a good one to propagate. You can give it a name since itís a seedling.

Exciting! Was it a store bought seed? We eat avocados nearly everyday at my department. Gotta try planting them.

Yes, he bought the fruit somewhere and planted the seed. It was a precocious tree.

Yes... don't call it Hass, it is something else.

Thatís so funny, John. Iíll post new photos once these are ripe and get tasted again, then see if itís worthy of a name.

No, it's a great name.  Keep us informed on this avocado.
