Check out the fruit set on the reeds here, looks like every flower set a fruitlet.








I know this is old thread but I couldn't hold back my laughter after seeing the pic. I happened to be stumbled across this thread.  Reed is surely productive.

This year I have one tree with last years fruits that is about to break a really large branch full of fruit.  That is a bad thing about reed.  The branches weep and break if thry get too full of fruit.  Even after heavy thinning, it is still too much.

I think "too much" is still better than too little ;D
My friend has a large Fuerte avocado tree and the avocado has great taste but it notoriously alternates its production.  He told me it produced only 16 or 17 avocado last year.

I got rid of fuerte because it was a huge tree and would  ake no fruit for years in a row.  I think fuerte is very dependent on perfect weather to set fruit or something.  It was maube the least dependable avocado tree i grew.

I now know that Reed is one of the most productive avocado varieties if not the best. I wonder what its taste like?
Can someone tell me how it tastes?

My reed avocado tree is blooming for the second year. Last year it dropped all its fruits. I guess I have to remove all fruits this year manually if it does not drop them for its growth.
