Interesting Avocado Species Available from SacredSucculents

Calling all avocado hunters

This caught my eye when perusing their site during their re-opening

Persea lingue “Lingue” “Chilean Avocado”
Lauraceae. Beautiful evergreen tree to 20–60'+. Shiny dark green leaves. Small yellow flowers and olive-size fruit with green to blue-black skin-almost
all seed. Native to the lower elevations of Chile and adjacent Argentina. The wood is hard, durable and good for construction. The leaves are used
medicinally as an astringent. Threatened throughout some of its range due to logging and agriculture. Z8a?

Probably not great fruit but might be useful in breeding more cold tolerant avocado, or just an interesting tree-

Ben always has super reasonable prices for his trees and is great to deal with, but sometimes takes a while to ship plants and only take checks by mail.
