Holiday Avocado Tree (Potted)

Holiday Avocado Tree (Potted)

Highly regarded for prolific production and flavor

Holiday Avocado trees, scientifically classified as Guatemalan A-type avocado trees, are prized for their exceptional productivity and delectable fruits. If you're considering adding these trees to your garden, here's everything you need to know about growing and caring for them:
 

Productivity and Fruit Characteristics:

  • Holiday Avocado trees are renowned for their high productivity, consistently yielding abundant harvests of delicious avocados.
  • The fruit of the Holiday Avocado is pear-shaped, typically weighing between 18 to 24 ounces.
  • One notable characteristic of Holiday Avocado fruit is its vibrant green color, which holds well on the tree until maturity.
     

Ripening Season and Name Origin:

  • The Holiday Avocado earned its name due to the timing of its fruit ripening, which occurs between Labor Day and New Year's Day.
  • This extended harvest season provides a unique opportunity for enjoying fresh avocados during the holiday season, hence the name "Holiday Avocado."
     

Frost Sensitivity and Climate Considerations:

  • It's crucial to note that Holiday Avocado trees are sensitive to frost, with temperatures below 30°F posing a risk to their health.
  • Therefore, these trees are best suited for regions with mild winters, where frost occurrences are rare or easily mitigated.
     

Tree Size and Growth Habit:

  • At maturity, Holiday Avocado trees typically reach heights of 12 to 18 feet, with a width of around 10 feet.
  • They exhibit a relatively short stature and tend to have a weeping growth habit as they mature, adding a unique aesthetic appeal to garden landscapes.
     

Planting Options:

  • Holiday Avocado trees can be planted both in-ground and in containers, offering flexibility for gardeners with various space constraints.
  • Whether you have a spacious garden or limited outdoor area, these trees can be a beautiful addition to your landscape.
     

Rootstock and Grafting:

  • Holiday Avocado trees are commonly grafted onto Mexican Seedling rootstock, which imparts desirable qualities such as vigor and disease resistance to the tree.
  • This grafting method ensures that the resulting trees exhibit optimal growth and fruiting characteristics.
     

Care and Maintenance:

  • Provide your Holiday Avocado tree with well-draining soil and ample sunlight for optimal growth and fruit production.
  • Regular watering is essential, especially during periods of drought or hot weather, to keep the soil consistently moist.
  • Mulching around the base of the tree can help retain soil moisture and suppress weed growth, promoting overall tree health.
  • Pruning may be necessary to shape the tree and remove dead or damaged branches, promoting better air circulation and sunlight penetration.
     

Growing Holiday Avocado trees can be a rewarding experience, offering both aesthetic beauty and a bountiful harvest of delicious fruits. By providing the right growing conditions and care, you can enjoy the seasonal delight of fresh avocados from your own garden during the holiday season.

These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 18-36” tall, with a trunk diameter between 1/4-1/2 inch. The trees are 12-18 months old and should start bearing fruit in their 5th year. They are planted in a 5x12" growers pot. Within a month of delivery we suggest repotting into a larger (10"-12" diameter) container or planting directly in the ground.

    Planting & Care

    Soil: Well drained soil, sunny locations, and wind protection. If you have heavy clay soils, it is recommended to plant your avocado tree in a raised bed (should be at least 2 feet high). We recommend planting them at least l"-2" inches above the existing soil grade and then creating a small mound around the base with a mixture of compost and well drained soil.

    Avocado trees are susceptible to root rot so you should not plant a new avocado tree in a space where an old tree had died as the soil may be contaminated.

    It is a good idea to apply a 3 to 4 inch layer of mulch to avocado trees each year to help retain soil moisture and improve soil quality. Apply mulch in spring and fall under the canopy of the tree, keep it away from the trunk of the tree.

    Water: Do not overwater avocado trees! Over watering trees in the ground in certain soils is often the number one factor in causing root rot. Avocados prefer infrequent deep root watering. It is best to allow trees to dry out before you apply water again. Avocados in containers do need consistent frequent watering.

    Pruning: Avocados should only be minimally pruned in order to shape and control size. Frequent pinching of young trees is a good method to shape the tree, rather than heavy pruning. Avocado trees can be susceptible to sunburn so newly pruned trees and young trees can be whitewashed with interior white latex paint, diluted 50-50 with water during periods of high summer heat and intense sunshine.

    Feeding: Avocado trees should be fed on a regular basis. Fertilize using well balanced citrus / avocado food using the manufacturer’s recommendations. Avocado trees that have been well feed year-round are better able to deal with cold temperatures in the winter.

    Guarantee

    We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
