I bought one 3 gal. tree in April this year, and shipped it to the Dominican Republic, its the only Avocado tree I have, I pugged and bare rooted it for shipping, and it survived and has flushed out new leaves since then and look healthy.It would be interesting to see how it does in DR. There are some growing Hass there I assume in higher altitudes. I have seen the fruit in Miami but when I cut it had black mold inside. Probably poor storage conditions.
Of course it will probably be years before I will get any fruit, but I will keep you informed when it does.
They do grow normal Hass here, but you wont see them in supermarkets. the company that grows them, exports them to Europe, and does process them into products for the local market ( Guacamole ). I saw fruit a few months ago, they looked nice just like what you would find in the States.
They do grow them at higher altitudes, you are correct.
I hope to get this Florida Hass, in the ground soon, its still filling out after my April butchering of it
, I also intend to get an Oro Negro on one of my next trips. I have heard nothing but good things about that one, and looks so cool, shiny black.
Keep us updated on the FH Avocado, do you know what its real harvesting season is? productivity ?
