Can anybody ID this avocado?
« on: April 09, 2018, 12:05:19 PM »
Hi, last year I bought 2 avocado grafted on Water Hole, and left the rootstock grow since I want to keep a pure mexican variety.
I bought from a nursery which I think buy from viveros blanco and since I can't find anything about Water Hole and the pictures on the website look awfully similar to Walter Hole(with an extra L) I thought it was that.
Problem is the leaves doesn't resemble the few I can find about Walter Hole, and it doesn't have the usual anise smell of the mexican avo.
The leaf is huge and almost two times that of the bacon you can see on the right(although it doesn't seem from the picture). Also it was damaged more than the  Bacon and Hass growing on it.
Any idea what's that?
Other roostocks Viveros Blanco use are Mexicola, Nachar, Maoz and Lula.

Sorry, I donít know enough about the specific leaf shapes to help you out. Does it have the anise smell that some avocado varieties have?

That's the point. It was supposed to have anice smell since Walter Hole is a mexican breed, but it doesn't.
It should be one of these, cause I am pretty sure the nursery is buying from them:
