How do Avocado Trees pollinate?

All avocado tree varieties are either A or B type, but the difference lies in the pollination. To encourage a successful harvest and to give your avocados optimal development, it is best if at least one of these trees are planted nearby as well.

The Type A avocado female flower part will open at the same time as a Type B male flower on the other tree; this more than doubles your chance for successful pollination and fruit-set!

Do I need to plant both types of Avocado Trees?

While ideal, it is not absolutely necessary to have one of each type. Most avocados varieties are considered “self-fruitful” and therefore do not need a partner tree for cross-pollination. Even without a friend, they should develop some avocado fruit. Hass is particularly good at providing a decent crop when grown solo. On the other hand, having that opposite Type A or Type B partner tree around basically guarantees a much larger and more successful crop. Certain varieties are especially dependent on a partner tree, such as Pinkertons. 

If you have the space, growing two different avocado trees in your garden is the best method. If not, there may be other avocado trees in your neighbourhood that can cross-pollinate with yours!

How close do avocado cross pollinator trees need to be?

Ideally, the two different types of Avocado Trees would be planted in the same garden.

But since Avocado Trees are predominantly pollinated by bees we can use the rule of thumb of the foraging area around a beehive which extends for two miles (3.2 km), so a few neighbourhood blocks. Essentially, if avocado trees are common in your area, you should be just fine with one. 

Why should I buy a Grafted Avocado Tree?

Avocado trees can certainly be grown from seed but unfortunately, these take up to 20 years before they produce fruit! The trees offered at From The Garden have been grafted at a young age which allows fruiting as early as the first or second year after planting.

Also, most grafted trees don’t grow as large as their “grown from seed” counterparts which means they won’t take up as much space as a huge fruit tree. Ideal for those with smaller gardens.
