Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Laurel Wilt Avocado (Stump or Remove)

By the way, I would not replant avocado in the area for 24 months to be safe.

Stumping the trees is not a good choice, especially if there are avocados in the area. Is like letting a Troyan Horse into your grove. The roots continue to spread the fungus while the tree is re-growing new vegetation on the new xylem growing (giving you the illusion that all is well) only to eventually die again by then it has spread to adjacent trees.  My grove still operational because I remove any contaminated tree right away. Roots and all.

In South Florida. The ones I did in April 100% take. I tried in Late October 0% all dead from fungal growth in graft union.

I have a couple and are growing in the ground in the grove in Homestead on rocky soil. Got them from Skhan.  Planted about a year ago. They grow extremely well. Straight up. Very clean. Looks like a big tree.  I have pruned them a couple to times to keep them small and develop heavy main trunk. Pictures to follow. Expecting flowers this spring.

Nice

They could be reticulatas also. "Custards Apple"   If you germinate them you will know soon.

Kampong is not.
I agree. Can you slice a fruit  leave the seed in it and take a picture.

On a brighter note, most trees with ripening fruit at this time of the year in Florida, are really good. Many seedlings of Waldin around with excellent tasting fruit. Your profile mentions you are at 2700' elevation. That fruit may need more time. It can also be a Hall seedling.

There are definitely ready now. Season is October to unk. I will pay more attention this year. 
Does not bear consistent every year. But for a homeowner is fine you are going to have really good fruit for two months. Really how many can you eat.
Is not a small tree. I have it growing between two Monroes so is king of box-in. Will get another tree going at a better location.
No I have not tried the improved Pollock

Wow I thought the season for Kampong was later.  I will definitely want to try some this year, have never gotten the chance.
Julie, I have found out that the length of time a fruit hangs in the tree is not necessarily related to fruit quality. Some fruit can hang on the tree while quality deteriorates.

Picked around October 10. This year they are spectacularly clean. The flavor 10++++. For those who value creaminess, AAA. Just clean tasting avocado,
Lacks the Catalina, Nishikawa and to some extend Oro Negro boiled egg taste that I don't like.   Delight on avocado toast or as side dish.  May be climate change is going to benefit some old varieties.
I wonder why this is not in every nursery in Florida, instead of the latest hype. On the late season spectrum this beats Monroe, Choquette, Lula, Hall. Not sure about the cold hardiness but has a lot of Guatemalan in it.

Thanks. I dont think the fruit will stay on the tree past early December size wise they seem in the 8-11 oz. I will pick every 15 days to see if they ripen before they drop

Beautifull property. Lots of possibilities. I which I could send you water we have plenty in Florida and it causes problems in the growing process. Your husband is correct. A grove is a lifetime process.

The release from UF is a red type I'm going to try to get hold of some fruit.

Agree with spaugh looks like Bacon. Crush and smell the leaves to see it you detect anise like aroma.

I grew it a few years ago and eventually cut it down. The fruit ripened rather early, very prolific, but flavor was bland. I felt we have better fruit from other varieties at that time.

24
The trees I got them from are supposed to be Thai Lessard. These were some of the first fruit set of the season. They were amazing, I take these over any atemoya I have tasted so far.

Big ones 20 oz plus
