The Fuerte Avocado Trees for sale will produce a better harvest if planted in the vicinity of an A Type Avocado such as Hass or Pinkerton Avocado Tree.

If you have a large garden, the Fuerte can become a substantial tree, perfect for climbing or even tree houses. However, these can be pruned down in smaller gardens or in containers to ensure the tree remains a manageable size. Grafted trees are generally smaller than their seed-grown counterparts which makes them attractive if you are limited on space.

Sunlight

Sunny spot that gets between 4-8 hours of direct sun daily

Watering

A thorough watering once weekly is generally all your avocado needs, however. While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, avocado leaves love humidity. Indoor Avocados will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running heat during cooler months.

Temperature

Generally a hardy tree down to 0 degrees celsius. Young plants will need some protection from frost.

Pollination Info

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!

The Fuert Avocado Tree is a Type B Avocado. While it is said to be self-pollinating, the Fuerte yields much better if planted with an ‘A’ variety for good fruit set.

Commonly planted with a Hass Avocado Tree or Pinkerton Avocado Tree.

Planting & Care Guide

Avocado Trees boast a no-fuss maintenance, but proper care prepares them for a abundant life. Your tropical fruit will need frequent, deep waterings once a week, with enough time between waterings to let the soil dry out a bit.

Also, avoid fertilizing trees their first year, because fertilizer can burn the roots and cause damage.
