Fuerte & Hass Avocado Tree Combo (Persea americana 'Fuerte', Persea americana 'Hass') is a fantastic cross-pollinating combo tree offering that ensures heightened pollination while saving space! High-density planting of both trees together boosts yields and gives you an extended, varied harvest of these super healthy 'alligator pears' for your clean eating enjoyment
Fuerte Avocados have green skin and fantastic flavor, ripening over the late fall through early summer. Hass Avocado is a gold standard favorite that ripens between April and October! Both have fantastic evergreen glossy foliage that lends beauty to your landscape year-round! The unusual greenish-yellow blooms add interest and feeds pollinators.
This Avocado Tree combo ensures pollination and yield increases by pairing the B-Type Fuerte Avocado and the A-Type Hass can cross-pollinate each other! These evergreen fruit trees do great in hot growing zones and do not tolerate hard frost, so keep in a container and bring indoors during cold weather to protect them from the chills.
Avocado trees are fantastic shade and privacy trees! Plant in an orchard addition or use as a windbreak or privacy hedge by taking your orchard linear! Screen porches and patios with pruned trees for an evergreen accent and shade.
Fuerte & Hass Avocado Tree Combo can be kept small for front yard landscaping and evergreen accenting anywhere! Pot up in a container or planter so even container gardeners, patio and balcony gardeners and small space gardens can enjoy these lovely trees with ease!
Avocado trees need full sun and very well-drained soil that's on the drier side. Provide moderate moisture while establishing. Mulch the site well to keep moisture levels even and insulate the roots.
