Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

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 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
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 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 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?

So if this tree was planted outdoors in Zone 10 (Oakland, CA) can I expect that one tree will produce fruit?
Hayesbiz on Jun 7, 2014
Best Answer: The Hass Avocado Tree is self pollinating and should produce fruit. Zone 10 should be a great area for it.

How long would it be before we can expect fruit?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
Best Answer: We were told maybe the 1st year or the 2d. We bought 3 trees last year. All 3 are doing beautifully and all had flowers during the winter. The trees main stem (trunk) and branches are so small however I don't believe they can produce fruit for several more years. The plant structure wouldn't be able to support the fruit. Either we received substandard plants or the idea of early fruit is misleading.

my avocado tree was doing well now its leaves are brown what can i do?
Patsy on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If the leaves look droopy and heavy your tree is getting too much water. If the leaves are curling upwards it isn't getting enough water. You can fertilize your tree with any fertilizer that says it's for a citrus tree.

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.

If I purchase a 5ft. tree, will that produce fruit immediately. Does it self pollinate or do I have to do anything else?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2014
Best Answer: I live 45miles east of Stockton/Sacramento CA where summer can get over 100 degrees - winter into the low 30's. I purchased both a Cold Hardy and Haas and planted them in containers on a south facing patio where they get partial tree shade. They both grew to double size before Fall and when the weather turned cold I moved them into my greenhouse where they thrived (no room in the house) and by early next spring they were loaded with fruit buds. A brief warm weather period and I moved them back to the patio. Big mistake. The weather turned cold again and that may be why the buds (now blossoms) began fall off. It's now mid August and I will again put them in the greenhouse when the weather turns and leave them until I'm sure the weather will stay warm. All this adds up to 'I probably would have had fruit the first year after planting but don't really know.' The trees continue to grow grow grow and may have to be pruned a little to fit into the greenhouse. Many say that these trees are not attractive. All is in the eye of the beholder. I love the loose unshapely big green leaf look which I can see through living room windows. I would buy more but couldn't fit them in the greenhouse. Since I have two trees, I can't answer the self pollination question.
Good luck and enjoy.

Realbv on Jul 20, 2014
Best Answer: I have yet to get fruit. I think it takes a few years depending on the age of the root. Also, it is cold sensitive so if it gets into a real freeze situation it may need protection. I thought I had killed mine from a cold night but luckily it survived. Hope to have fruit one of these days!!

We purchased a new avocado tree a year ago. It seems happy bearing lots of fruit but growing tall with branches also low. Looks like it needs a good pruning but I don't know best way to tackle it? Any suggestions?
Leslie C on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: My Hass avocado succumbed to the harsh weather we had this past winter. I had it in a pot, but protected. But obviously, not enough. I don't think you would have a problem of pruning the lower branches. I think you can prune most any tree or shrub to the shape you would like. And, I don't think it matters when you do this.

Just a note - I did not prune my hass. Its demise was all due to the weather.

Joyce H on Sep 23, 2014
Best Answer: You can start your avocado seed in a jar full of water. You will need to stick 3 tooth pick in the seed just above the water line. You can plant it in a pot with potting soil but I have found that it can take several months for the seed to get rooted. When you place you seed in a jar ( I use the small green olive jars) . Keep the jar filled with water and in about 1 month you should see the top of the avocado seed crack and then in a week or so you should begin to see the root at the bottom and the tree stem from the top. Let the tree get to be about 6-12 inches then transplant in a pot. Hope this helps and good luck.

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.

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.
