I am interested, but can you tell us a little about it? Is the fruit edible?

No, the fruit is not edible. It's wood was used in the old days to make agriculture tools. As its wood was considered high quality it has become very rare. It is an endemic species of the Macaronesian islands (Azores, Madeira, Canary islands) where it is part of the Laurel Forest, a relic from the pre-glaciation period.
I have recently found a population of Persea indica in and around my farm. They are very beautiful, the leaves turn red when old and they currently have fruits. And lot's of baby plants around the bigger ones but those I can't ship ;)!

Do you have any idea about the hardiness of this species ?
Resistant or not to Phytophthora cinnamomi ?
Have you tried rootstock for the other avocados ?

It never freezes in the Azores location where I live (should be 11a), only at higher altitudes. But this species is more common at medium to lower altitudes.

Have never tried as rootstock for other avocados. Does not seem to be compatible according to this study: http://avocadosource.com/CAS_Yearbooks/CAS_42_1958/CAS_1958_PG_102-105.pdf

Regarding susceptibility to Phytophthora cinnamomi, this information is hard to find as the species has low commercial value. But a few academic articles I found do confirm there is susceptibility. At my place it seems to be affected by a fungal root rot disease that I think is caused by Armillaria, but still to be confirmed.

Plenty of seedlings and seeds for sale if you want any.

Best,

T
