Frequently asked questions


Grafted trees grow true to variety

and may fruit within 1-2 years
seed grown trees may take 7 years to fruit

Type A and type B flowering

Avocado varieties are categorized according to flowering “habit”, into type A and B
They are partially self-fertile so can produce some fruit as a single tree.
Type A is most self fertile
Yields will be increased if there is a tree of each type.

Do I need to mix varieties?

"Varieties do not need to be mixed at planting, at least in eastern Australia. In most production areas of eastern Australia, pollination and fruit set are adequate in single variety blocks of trees. However, in colder areas such as Sunraysia–Riverland and the south-west of Western Australia, some mixing of varieties may be beneficial for improving pollination and fruit set. Seek specialist advice before proceeding. Also remember that the introduction of bee hives at the correct stage of flowering may be as important in improving yields as the mixing of varieties."
