The Go-To Avocado Tree for Cold Climates

Why Cold Hardy Avocado Trees?

Home-grown avocados, no matter where you live. With the Cold Hardy Avocado Tree, it’s possible. This strong tree withstands frigid temperatures as low as 20 degrees, living up to its name.

Simply plant your Avocado Tree in a container and bring it inside during the winter months – it will continue to grow. You’ll get an abundant yield of fruit, year after year, and even faster than you would with seed-grown varieties. Basically, the Cold Hardy Avocado’s fast growth means you’re going to enjoy your avocados in at least three years instead of the 10 years or more it takes to grow fruit from seedlings.

Planting & Care

Avocados can easily be grown in the home, garden, orchard or patio, require little to no pruning and are easily contained.

1. Planting: The Cold Hardy Avocado is specially adapted to our cooler climates. They will grow in partial shade but prefer full sun when possible. And the skin of the fruit is paper-thin, and purple-black in color – they have high-quality flesh with a large amount of oil and are hardy to about 20-degrees once established.

Water the tree well before planting, then dig a hole larger than the pot you purchased it in and 1 to 2 inches deeper. Remove the tree from the pot and separate the roots, careful to avoid breakage. Water the tree and fill in the dirt as you water. Cover the new soil with mulch to retain moisture and keep weeds away.

2. Watering: Cold Hardy Avocado Trees may not need to be watered during the winter season or rainy months, but watch for extended mid-winter dry spells. Watch soil moisture carefully at the end of the irrigating season. Make sure the soil has dried out before winter arrives.

3. Fertilizing: Commence feeding young trees after one year of growth by using a balanced fertilizer four times yearly. Unusual temperature changes can cause plants to drop leaves. Leaf drop is natural and the plant will typically replace its foliage during its natural growing season.

4. Pruning: Cold Hardy Avocados need little to no training. You may wish to trim the tree’s skirts to deter small critters, but other than that, this tree is never pruned.

5. Pollination: Avocado Trees are self-fertile, so you don’t have to have another Avocado Tree around for it to bear fruit. If it blooms indoors, you might want to shake it a bit to spread the pollen, since you will have no bees or wind to do it for you. However, as with all fruit trees, they will each produce more fruit with two trees, but you will need to use a different type of tree for your avocado yield to increase.

You want an A type and a B type tree to produce the most fruit. Two “A” type trees will open male and female at the same time, while a B type tree opens the opposite, so you’ll have it open male when the A type is open female. Our Cold Hardy Avocado is a type B. You could use a type A, such as the Hass, if you are interested in increasing your harvest.
