Our Grafted Avocados Produce up to 7 Years Sooner than Seed Grown trees.. We take a hardy avocado root stock and graft on a cutting from a mature avocado tree, proven to produce delicious fruit. So your tree thinks it's grown up and starts making fruit. This is the same process used for commercial orchards, but is not always used for the home market.

Add a unique look to your patio or sunroom with the Hass Avocado. Outdoors this fruit-bearing tree will reach heights of 15 to 20 feet and a width of 5 to 8 feet at full maturity. In a container it will reach between 5 and 7 feet in height, allowing you to easily pick your avocado fruit in late summer.

The Hass is a cold-hardy down to 26 F. once established,  making it suitable for climate zones 9-11. However the Hass Avocado thrives indoors for all zones, 4-11. It performs well in full to partial sunlight and is a self-pollinator so you only need one tree to produce a hearty harvest. A second pollinator will increase the harvest for each tree. Many customers pollinate their Haas with our Cold Hardy Avocado Tree.

The Hass Avocado has dark green, bumpy skin which turns black as it ripens. The creamy, inner flesh is delicious in salads or guacamole. This avocado tree will not only look great on your patio but it will provide you with an abundant supply of healthy fruit.

Allow your avocados to reach full maturity on the tree to ensure the richest flavored fruit. The fruit may be kept on the tree for several months after reaching maturity, but they will not soften until picked. To quickly soften your avocados after picking, place them near bananas other other ripened fruit.

It's Easy to Plant your Hass Avocado Tree

Specific Directions for Hass Avocado Tree
Your Hass Avocado Tree will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. Although Avocado Trees prefer full sunlight they can tolerate shade. If planted indoors place your Avocado Tree by a large sunny window. Southward facing areas receive more light.

Hass Avocado Trees will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining. Make sure that the surface of the soil is dry to the touch in between waterings. Four times a year fertilize your Hass Avocado Tree with a citrus fertilizer.

Once your Hass Avocado Tree blooms and starts to produce fruit, it can take about 8 months for your avocados to mature. Once their skin turns a dark green color they're ready to be harvested. They take about 7 to 10 days to ripen after being picked. When the skin on your Avocados turns a darker green to purple color they're ready to be eaten.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Hass Avocado Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Hass Avocado Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Hass Avocado Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Great service. I love my trees, including the Avocado Tree. My Tree looks great in the living room and it currently has 25 baby avocados on it. Being that I only bought it last year, I am happy that it has a good number of avocados. I am not sure how many will make it to the end, as the tree is still very young. It is not easy to polinate as most female flowers opened in the morning and the male flowers in the evening. I used Q-tips to polinate them on the weekend when I was at home, as there is no bees or wind indoor. I am very please so far. Keep up the good job

Received my avocado tree. It was packaged neatly and securely. When I opened the box I saw it had lost some of its leaves. I planted it and it lost all of its leaves. I emailed support and they told me it was in shock. I kept watering it and it sprung back to life. Anxious to see the first yield which realistically will not occur until next year.

Hass Avacado Tree
I just got the plant earlier this year. The plant came in good condition. I decided to repot the tree in a larger pot. The tree has done pretty well so far. I have had to fight off some insects that like to lay its eggs under the leaf area. I have some new growth and will look forward to next year to see if it produces some fruit. My family loves avacados so if it grows well I may purchase another next year. I live in Jacksonville Florida and hopefully the climate will be a good growing place.

Hass Avacado and CuBe
My Hass Avacado arrived right on time and looking good. Transplanted it immediately into Victory 8 Garden CuBe. Was a bit wilted for about a week and after that has done great. Only dropped a few leaves. Has grown at least a foot or more and continues to thrive, eventhough the night are getting cooler here in the mountains.
Seems the Victory 8 Garden light weight fabric CuBe and Fast Growing Trees Hass Avacado make a great combo.

Our first tree arrived in poor shape and died.It was immediately replaced by a much better tree! We did our research and discovered that these trees do best in filtered sun light.Since we live in zone 8, we potted the tree.It is November in the Northwest and we brought it in to the study and it is doing very well.We also bought a olive tree,planted it outside and it is thriving.We are very pleased with our experience with Fast Growing Trees.

Haas avocado tree
Ordered the Haas avocado tree as a Christmas gift for my nephew who eats avocados daily!! He was thrilled! We weren't sure how it would hold up to Texas weather - hot one day, cold the next - but so far it has done great. It has put on so much new growth and he just has it sitting in front of a window during colder days. We have already looked at purchasing more for the rest of the family! Also, we really appreciated the instructions on taking care of a new fruit tree.

Haas Avocado
I ordered two trees both about 5-7 feet tall. One did well and the other went through shipping trauma. It lost all of its leaves and side branches as well as some of its height. It did this all within the first week, even though I planted both trees as soon as they arrived. The company was quick to respond and credit me for the sad tree. I was so looking forward to a bunch of avocados next season but will have to wait and see.

Hass Avocada Tree
My Tree is growing slow, but looks healthy and green'. The first buds appeared in Nov. and I am excitedly waiting for spring to see if the fruit is formed.
I understand the avocado flowers are both male and female. It opens in the morning and is fertilized in the afternoon. Is this correct?
I'll let you know when the tree bears fruit.

Thank you fast growing trees the new trees are beautiful!
The first Hass avacodo plants shipped had a problem, but as soon as we contacted fast growing trees customer service,(which is a model that all company customer service should use) they upgraded our original order with much larger and very hardy trees. One is already flowering and the Persea Americana fruit is anxiously anticipated.

Hass Avacado Growth Pattern
Funny you should ask How the Avocado tree is doing. When I received it I immediately placed it in a large pot of planting mix. It drouped for a few days then started losing some of the upper larger leaves. Then it began to perk up and form new buds which have been in a no growth mode for all of the summer and most of fall. Two weeks ago, wala the buds started to turn into small leaves. Perhaps this is normal. We have mostly cool weather with some nice sunny days at this time of the year. Will we be eating avocados next year?

Do you need the planting kit?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
Best Answer: Make sure you check akalinity of the soil to have a good ph before planting. You do need the protection on the base of the tree from sun and edging. If done over I would have dug twice the size hole and used pure top soil. DO NOT USE anything with compost, will burn your leaves and kill your tree.

In what month does a Hass Avocado tree fruit ripen?
Bruno K on Mar 9, 2015
Best Answer: Typically February to April. Note that the fruit doesn't ripen on the tree. You have to pick it and let it sit for 1-2 weeks. When you suspect they're ready, pick one or two and let them sit for two weeks. If they're rubbery or they shrivel, they're not ready. If they soften, they're ready. There's no rush to get them off the tree. They can sit on the tree for quite a long time.

If I order 4 to 5 feet avocado trees how will I know they will be that tall??
A shopper on Oct 2, 2014
Best Answer: We guarantee them to arrive at least 4ft tall and anywhere between 4 to 5 feet tall. Each tree is unique with a different growth rate and pattern so they don't all have uniform heights.

A shopper on Sep 10, 2014
Best Answer: If you are in a zone 9 you can plant it in the ground. If you are 8 or below you will want to put it in a container and take it inside when the weather gets below 40. http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/ZoneMap.htm

How will i know when to pick my Hass avacados at aht color will the skins be?
A shopper on Aug 28, 2014
Best Answer: Once their skin turns a dark green color they're ready to be harvested. They take about 7 to 10 days to ripen after being picked. When the skin on your Avocados turns a darker green to purple color they're ready to be eaten.

i have a hass tree and the truit is falling so the leaves what can i do ?
javier v on Aug 1, 2014
Best Answer: If you are watering it properly it could be a serious lack of nutrients. Severe temperature changes could also cause this reaction. Lastly, if it's in the ground, gophers will eat the root tips and can cause this type of stress to the tree. Good luck.

Do you recommend planting more than one tree for cross pollination?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2014
Best Answer: Yes. Planting two or three trees for cross pollination would create a much higher fruit yield.

The web site shows the Hass is suitable for outdoor planting in zones 9 - 11. The "Important Planting Directions for your Hass Avocado Tree" email indicates that Hass is suitable for outdoor planting in zones 10 and 11 only. Which is correct?

Do you add mulch if tree is planted in a container? "Planting for your Haas avocado" email says keep mulch 6 to 12 inches from the trunk. The containers you sell are 12 inch x 12 inch and a comment notes this is suitable for any avocado. Sooo, in a 12x12 container, the outside is 6" from the center. Where would you put any mulch?

I plan to plant my avocado tree soon after receiving it. I'm in zone 9, Jacksonville, FL with soil that drains well and placing it in an area of my yard that gets great sunshine. When preparing the plant hole, what type of soil/mulch would be best to plant it in to help root growth and give it the best chance for success as the roots reach well daring soil? Any other recommendations for success?

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
