Where to Plant Avocado Trees

If you’re planting this tree in a container, you should place it in front of a large, sun-lit window in your home. If you’re able to plant your tree in the ground, the Southern side of your home in an area with well-drained soil is best. Remember, you should plant your Avocado Tree in an area that gets at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

 

Pollination

A mature avocado tree may grow millions of green flower clusters during the flowering season. These flowers have both female and male organs, but they do not work at the same time. 

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. 

 

Planting your Avocado Tree

When growing your own Avocado Tree indoors, there are a few things you can do to maximize your success. First, as previously stated, find an area that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Next, you will want to take your avocado tree out of the standard nursery pot that it was shipped in, and plant it in a container that is twice the size of the root ball and has drainage holes - avoid using a saucer as well.

Harvest

Hass Avocados are ready to harvest as early as February to as late as September. Cold Hardy Avocados usually ripen between September and November, and Day Avocados are harvested from July through September. However, it depends on the weather in your area, fertilization, and the bearing pattern of the tree. If you didn’t know by now, avocados have to be harvested by hand - if you don't pick, they won't fall! And remember: the longer the fruit stays on the tree, the richer the taste.
