Help on my ID of Zutano Fruit - California members
« on: July 19, 2022, 02:03:08 PM »
 I did a thread a few months ago on my Zutano Trees https://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=47232.msg458951#msg458951

Now the issue I have is if in fact I have a Zutano tree. The fruit is growing very large
I picked one today is 28.2 oz.  I thought very large for a Zutano  mostly described as a 14-16 oz fruit.



I did checked the foliage and looks like picture of Zutanos I have seen, but the fruit seems too large. On the fruits I have seen online some fruits that look like mine other that don't. See below :
https://www.producemarketguide.com/produce/avocados/zutano-avocados   These dont look like mine.
https://preppings.com/item/2757/Zutano%20Avocado/  These Do look like mine.

My looks like a Choquette with the problem that Choquettes at this time of the year here are about a1/4 of the size.

I dont know of any other person in my area growing Zutano, It sure likes our heat and humidity extremely clean tree and fruit.

Looks more like a west indian avocado than zutano.  Zutano is pear shaped and bumpy.  They have a pointed seed that often has a bad spot at the tip of the seed too.

Hard to say though for sure.

I have a Zutano avocado (at least the prior owner insisted it was, and it is quite different than the Hass in stores). It looks very different from the one you are showing. I will try to post some pictures. Flesh is much less sulfuric than Hass, seeds are large, overall tasty.
