WANTED: Seeds of any Mexican avocado variety
« on: May 23, 2019, 06:16:44 AM »
Hello. I'm looking to buy seeds of Mexicola, Stewart or any other Mexican avocado variety. I need them to be Mexican for cold tolerance, so the hardier the better.

The season starts in July and there are many native varieties. There are seeds that are really big but we can try to get you some

Some cold tolerant avocados are Fuerte and Bacon. They can stand -3C.
Fuerte you can buy in the shops sometimes, they are a good rootstock.
I have grafted plants, but I can't send plants outside EU. Maybe scions if you are interested, but not now, only during spring or fall.

Unfortunately, -3 is not enough. My only option is a Mexican variety seedling, and scions won't do, as I need a Mexican rootstock anyway. Maybe graft something onto that later on, and of course I would prefer a grafted Mexican variety rather than a seedling, but this is hardly an option for me due to transportation and customs issues, so growing a Mexican variety seedling is my only option.

Curious, do you know this avocado grower in Mexico?  He grows the typical criolo varieties, all are named varieties. https://www.facebook.com/jaime.gonzalez.900388?__tn__=%2CdlC-R-R&eid=ARBq9MEg4CRtHJaQJV-ERVkTV_slqF8oh7bRQ2MRH5L4FJoDe_suzTDFllJ2JlJpx6r-kqTnTWzh7Opg&hc_ref=ARSm137MJLu4gTrAkjARILAiA71ufnyzZqxSxexNBpL13CJTcMxN28eFYVBo1NWflZw

You might look for Duke or Aravaipa seeds -- take a look at JoeReal's posts on this forum.  They will have the kind of cold tolerance you're looking for.

I don't know about Duke, but I've read on this forum that Aravaipa doesn't taste very good.

Bump. It's July already so I suppose the season has already started. Anyone got Mexican avocado seeds to sell?

The earliest Mexican type avocados in California that I know of are Duke, which fruit in September (maybe some are ready in August), and Mexicola isn't too much later.

Yeah, it makes sense that it would be earlier in Mexico because they are further South.
