Avocado variety identification
« on: September 23, 2022, 11:12:18 AM »
I bought a grafted avocado plant from a local nursery out here in Ludhiana, India. The nursery couldn’t tell me the variety and only labeled iit ‘grafted avocado’. It’s pretty and very healthy plant. Avocado plantation is very rare in India, this is the first avocado plant I’ve seen in my life, couldn’t resist taking it home.
Recently my avocado has grown some new leaves, I’ve posted photos of the both old and new leaves.

You can tell different Avocado varieties apart by the leaf shape and colour of new growth, and tree shape if you know what you are looking for.
It is hard question because we don't know the source of the grafts.
It could be a more tropical area to the south, a neighbouring country,
or an agricultural research station in your area.
It could be grafted from a unique fruiting tree in your area ?

Mexican varieties have anise scented leaves, so if it has scented leaves it is more likely a Mexican type or Mexican hybrid.

Other members might be able to guess what Avocado race the tree could possibly be ?

I thought avocado trees were common in India

It looks like a nice tree. Sorry I cant ID it any further.
Are Avocado fruit available in shops or markets in Ludhiana ?
Maybe it came from where the fruit farms are ?
Maybe it is one of those types ?
What type of Avocado fruit can you buy in India ?Are they Local or Imported ?

Avocado farming is very rare in India. Mostly imported avocados are available in the market. Not sure what variety they sell out here, the cost of single piece is like $5.
