Brogdon avocad question
« on: September 18, 2018, 08:45:40 PM »
Thought I would see if anyone has used Brogdon avocado seeds for grafting. My tree seems to be extremely vigorous so I thought the seeds might work well because of the vigor.
I haven't gotten any fruit yet, just transplanted it from a pot into the ground.

I have had more avocadoes die on me after planting than I care to admit.  Someday I would like to actually taste an avocado that can live here on the upper Texas Gulf coast but all the reviews say they taste like grass.

Look into getting a Stewart avocado tree, I live close to you(midtown) and my stewart is doing great. You are going to have to build a raised bed(mine are 28 in. high).  Fruit set hasnt been an issue.  I have many trees, but I think our day/night temps cause the both types of flower's opening periods to overlapse longer when the flies and bees visit them. The full sun will be an issue so I greatly recommend some overhead shade cloth will the trees are still young.

Thanks for the replies.I have had a couple of different avocados in large pots for a couple years now hoping to move to a warmer area. I finally had to give up and plat them. They were getting very root-bound. A few set avocados, but the squirrels got them before I could... Hate those furry little @#%^&*(*  Anyway no problems keeping them alive, just tented them and ran flood lights inside the tents during hard freezes. It will be a challenge to keep them pruned and covered going on now that there in the ground.
