Anyone here try the super Hass and also a nishikawa? I bought a super Hass but it got root rot. It’s staring to grow back but if it didn’t make it I was going to get a nishikawa as the replacement.

Which one taste better? I like the creamy fatty avocados. Not the watery ones.
I found a Nishikawa and snagged it.  But, it was just a couple of weeks ago and it's still in the pot.  It's from Top Tropical, and I quarantine everything I get from them as much of their stuff has an infestation, and most of it isn't very healthy.  They get GREAT selections, but for some reason, most of it isn't very healthy.

We’re growing Super Hass (“Oolala”) and Nishikawa. Both are excellent but I haven’t tasted them next to each other to compare. Our Nishikawa has no fruit this year but Supwr Hass has some after taking last year off.

Do you not have any Nishikawa this year because it is too young to support fruit or did it bear fruit last year but not this year?

Had some fruit last year but none this year. It’s not a big tree and has grown slowly.

Cookie Monster getting excited!

I moved to FL from socal 13+ years ago -- with literally miles of haas avocado groves within walking distance from my house (right next to the Calavo packing house). Still have not adapted to the horrible west indian avocadoes that are grown here. Over the years, I've found a couple that I can down without retching (usually the ones with giant seeds and thin flesh -- which seems to concentrate the flavor a little).

Enjoyed a delicious Super Hass from our tree this morning. You would be hard pressed to tell the difference between this and regular Hass:

Just curious. Are the cultivars like brogdon or winter Mexican which appear to have some success in Central FL very much different in quality from Hass? They are definitely not watercados.

I just snagged a FL Super Hass Saturday, nice, healthy specimen from Fruitscapes on Bokeelia.  What I didn't know is they have Nishikawa trees there also, I wish I had bought mine there.  Their stuff is so much better quality than Top Tropicals, and much cheaper.

And more likely to be properly Labelled as well.
