Wilson Popenoe Avocado Tree From Puerto Rico
« on: May 19, 2019, 02:19:56 PM »
Hello Members ,

I purchased this grafted Wilson P Avocado tree a few month ago from eBay , Rustiko is the seller out of PR.

The rest arrived supper stressed out I thought it was a goner !.

I just placed it to a shady spot in my lanai and several weeks later it bounced back!

Itís a beautiful tree with beautiful foliage 😊.
I love the taste of the fruit , a family member sends me fruit and we loved it .
Will be planting this in ground in a few weeks .

Looks like Wilson Popenoe, named after a famous fruit explorer who said it came from Lancetilla, Honduras.
I haven't compared but they look similar to Russell.
