I think those seedlings of avocado will be true to type because the leaves are red and they contain more anthocyanins wich its the same pigment that makes the fruit color to be violet.
My red fleshed apple ,the Red love era,also has red bark and reddish new leaves because the tree contains the anthocianins too,not only the fruit.

Yes the red love is one of the most beautifull trees i have. bark has a nice bright orange color and new growth/flowers red/violet.
I really hope the avocado will turn out great!

Do you know how cold hardy it should be? like Hass or Fuerte or anything else?

No i don't think it will cold hardy. It's from Belize, so...
It's West Indian race... so no cold hardy at all. I will grow it on pots untill i can, and then will plant it on a protected place and pray for the best!   ;D

Nice apple varietyes and you got the star shaped apple too.
My red fleshed apple,Red love era ,has green leaves thogh not red but the fruit its deep red.
All your red flesh apple varietyes have red leaves.
The italian apple looks like it could have a little red in it also and even the quince i think it will have a little pink inside because the flowers are not fully white.

Hi! The only red apple i already had was baya marisa and is full red. The flavour is sweet and a bit tart but less than grany smith. I'm very happy that all of them are flowering for the first time. The italian i don't know but i think it's white flesh and the gamboa is bright yellow flesh and skin.

Hi Luis, your collection is expanding rapidly!
Where have you got the syzygium samarangense?

Do you think your friend can sell some seeds of the red avocado?
