Avocado Questions

1. Do you need two avocado trees to get fruit NZ?

You do not need two avocado trees to produce fruit, but it is recommended. Avocado trees are self-pollinating, meaning that they can produce fruit without the need for another tree. However, cross-pollination between two different varieties of avocado trees will result in better yields from both trees.

2. What is type A and B avocado?

Avocado varieties are classified into two groups, A and B, based on when their male and female flowers open. A-type trees have female flowers that open in the morning and male flowers that open in the afternoon, while B-type trees have female flowers that open in the afternoon and male flowers that open in the morning. If you have two avocado trees of different types, their flowers will be open at the same time, increasing the chances of pollination and fruit production.

3. What is the best avocado tree in New Zealand?

The best avocado tree in New Zealand is a matter of opinion. However, the most popular and productive variety is Hass. It is the main variety grown in New Zealand due to its good yields of fruit that has a rich flavour and creamy texture.

4. How much space is needed for an avocado tree?

The amount of space needed for an avocado tree depends on the variety and the desired spacing. Most avocado trees will need at least 3 m between other trees and buildings. They can grow into large trees 8 m tall and the same wide, but are more often kept to smaller sizes with trimming.

5. How do you grow Avocados?

To grow Avocados, follow these steps:

  1. Choose a planting site that is well-drained and in full sun. They can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but they will likely die in poorly drained soil.
  2. Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and place the plant in the hole. Backfill with soil, firm the plant in, and water well.
  3. Avocado trees need regular watering, especially during the first year after planting. Water once a week, or more often during hot weather.
  4. Feed the plants with a balanced fertiliser once a month during the growing season.
  5. Mulch around the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.
  6. Trim the trees during early spring to contain them as necessary.

Avocados are relatively low-maintenance plants and will grow for years with proper care.

6. How long does it take for an avocado tree to fruit NZ?

Time to fruit for an avocado tree depends on the variety, the climate, and how well the tree is looked after. Grafted avocado trees typically start producing fruit within 2-4 years of planting. However, trees grown from seed can take up to 12 years or more to start fruiting, and they may never produce fruit at all.

Avocado trees grow best in warm, subtropical climates. Trees planted in cooler climates may take longer to fruit, or they may not fruit at all. They also require regular watering and feeding to produce fruit. Trees that are stressed due to drought, nutrient deficiency, or pests and diseases will take longer to fruit.

Here are some tips for helping your avocado tree to fruit:

With proper care, your avocado tree should start producing fruit within 2-4 years of planting.

8. Do you need a Type A and Type B avocado?

You do not need a Type A and Type B avocado tree to get fruit, but it is recommended. Avocado trees are self-pollinating, meaning that they can produce fruit without another tree. However, cross-pollination between two different varieties of avocado trees will result in a heavier yield for both varieties.

7. What is the best fertiliser for avocados NZ?

A balanced fertiliser is best for avocados. That is, it must have nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. The Plant Company recommends using slow-release fertilisers which release nutrients slowly with time. This helps ensure the tree has a steady supply of nutrients throughout the growing season.

9. What is the difference between Hass and Fuerte avocados?

Hass and Fuerte avocados are two of the most popular avocado varieties. They both have a delicious flavour and creamy texture, but there are some key differences between the two.

10. What is the best avocado for the backyard?

The best avocado for the backyard depends on the size of your yard, the climate in your area, and your personal preferences. However, some good options include:

Regardless of which variety is selected, they should be given about 3 m of space to grow. Don’t be shy to trim them during early spring to control their growth.

11. Can you get a miniature avocado tree?

There are two ways to achieve a miniature avocado tree:

1. Grow a dwarf avocado variety:

2. Use pruning techniques to keep a regular avocado tree small:

12. Can you keep an avocado small?
