Hall Avocado

(1/3) > >>

Are any members growing the Hall avocado?  Can you tell me about its ripening dates, productivity, and flavor?  Also, growth characteristics?  Would it be along the same lines as Simmonds, Choquette, or Monroe as far as oil content and flavor?  Or perhaps a little denser (drier) and more flavorful like Lula?  Anything else you can tell me about this variety and whether it's worth growing?  I'm looking for something that starts ripening in the fall a couple months before Monroe kicks in.  Thank you, friends.  Even if you tasted it and didn't like it, let me know.  I know it's one of the "SlimCados."  God, I hate that name!

Carlos knows. ;)  While I'm at it, Simmonds, Pollock, or Dupuis?  Which is the best summer avocado?  By a whole lot, or just marginally?  Carlos has said that Dupuis is fussy, so would Monroe pollinate it?

More oil content and drier. Antracnosis hit it hard

So maybe it's disease-prone?  Can you suggest a variety, canito, for fall ripening in South Florida, other than Lula?  Also, looking forward to seeing your varieties in the not-too-distant future!
