Delicious Avocados Without the Wait

  • Your very own tree delivers avocados up to 7 years sooner than seed-grown trees
  • You’ll get a large harvest every year for 40+ years
  • Its fruit tastes better than store bought avocados
  • These trees thrive inside or outside – in every state throughout the US
  • Easy to own; requires little maintenance 
  • Self-pollinating
  • Save hundreds of dollars in the first few years!

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 cold-hardy down to 30 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 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.





Hass Avocado Tree Pollination


Hass Avocado Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

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.

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.

Hass Avacodo
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.

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.

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.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Hass Avocado Tree


Hass Avocado Tree Planting Diretions 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.

WHAT IS THE SIZE BETWEEN THE HASS AND THE COLD HARDY AVOCADO? OUNCE WEIGHT...
WALLY M on Dec 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They both bear fruit in the 6-12 oz or more range, and have very similar flavor - rich and nutty, with classic avocado taste and texture.
How long would it be before we can expect fruit?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our larger size trees (4-5 ft and 5-6 feet) are blooming and fruiting size, and will sometimes come with fruit already growing; it will take a few months for any new avocado to acclimate to its new home, but you should have new blooms within the first year or so and fruit the year after, since it can take 6 to 9 months for the fruit to mature. Smaller trees will take longer to get big enough to bloom and fruit, but you should have the first blooming from them a year or two after planting and fruit growing shortly afterward. Of course, the first harvests are quite small, but as the tree matures, they can give you substantial numbers of Avocados. We sell grafted trees that will produce delicious, high-quality fruit in just a year or two, not seedlings that take 7-10 years to even think of blooming and fruiting, and yield poor quality fruit, if they even produce any.
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.
Perhaps this question has already been answered but here I go: What type of container is the avocado tree shipped in? How long can it remain in the shipping container?
bambam on Jul 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our trees are shipped in plastic containers, and your tree will be fine in it for about a week. The sooner you plant it the better. If the container is too large for shipping then we remove it and wrap the roots in burlap.
If I bought the 5 ft.tree what size pot would it need ?
Barbara T on Jul 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: You would need to start out with a 12-14 inch pot, or one slightly bigger than the pot you received it in. When the roots fill the pot (1-2 years, depending on how well the plant grows), you will need to repot into a larger pot. As the tree grows, you will need to repot every year or so, each time into a larger pot, and ending with a 24" pot, or a half whiskey barrel. Having the pot on a wheeled base helps a lot when moving it around. The size of the pot will limit the size of the plant, so if you have very limited space, you might want to stop at a bit smaller pot; the tree takes well to pruning and you will need to keep it pruned to the size you want.
If i keep my plant in a pot, how big will it get? Obviously it is hard to bring it inside if it is 15-20 feet tall. I am in zone 6.
tracy f on Feb 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Avocados do grow smaller when grown in a pot than in the ground, but you will still want to prune it so it stays the size you want. 6-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide is easily do-able in a pot. In the first two years, you can pinch back the central stem to encourage lateral growth and bushiness. You can also remove the tips of the lateral branches when they reach a length of 6 to 8 inches, pinching them off or cutting them with shears in front of the endmost bud. Continue to pinch back both vertical and lateral stems once or twice each year to maintain the size of the plant. You can remove up to half the length of a stem as long as you leave an 8-inch length of stems with some leaves on the plant.
Will a Haas Avocado tree cross pollinate with a Cold Hardy Avocado Tree? What is the difference between the two?
Suzi C on Mar 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they will cross pollinate and increase fruit production by over 50% because of the way their blooms open in a complementary succession. The Cold Hardy Avocado is a type B Avocado. The Hass Avocado is a type A. Type A blooms open in the morning as a female receptive to pollen, and then shed pollen as a male the following afternoon. Type B cultivars are receptive to pollen in the afternoon and shed pollen the next morning. So planting an A type and a B type 15 feet apart will improve fertilization and increase your harvest.
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.
I want to plant in a pot what size would I need?
Debbie D on Mar 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Most experts recommend a 24 inch pot or a half whiskey barrel, and you will need to have it on a wheeled base to make it easier to move the plant indoors. You will gradually get to that size by starting out in a 12-inch pot and repotting every year or two into a pot 2 inches larger than the year before till you get to the size you want. Keeping it in a smaller pot (14-16") will keep the plant smaller, making it easier to handle and fit indoors for winter, but also making it produce less fruit. Judicious pruning staring at an early age will also help keep your plant a manageable size.
Is there ever a need to prune the tree??? Also took my tree outside for the first time and now the leaves are turning brown? Too much direct sun?? Or it's been pretty rainy - too much rain?
Trisha T on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: About pruning: Formative pruning to keep the plant smaller will make harvesting and maintenance a lot easier. In the first two years, you can pinch back the central stem to encourage lateral growth and bushiness. You can also remove the tips of the lateral branches when they reach a length of 6 to 8 inches, pinching them off or cutting them with shears in front of the endmost bud. Continue to pinch back both vertical and lateral stems once or twice each year to maintain the size of the plant. You can remove up to half the length of a stem as long as you leave an 8-inch length of stems with some leaves on the plant.
About your leaves turning brown when you moved the plant outdoors, you are probably right on both counts of too much sun and too much water. When you first move a plant outdoors, you need a transition period, starting with a couple of hours of morning sun and then moving it to a shaded are for the rest of the day; increase the hours in the sun each day until after 7-10 days, it is in pretty much full sun. When you have a lot of rain, be sure your pot does not sit in a saucer that holds water, but have it elevated so the water will drain out and away from the pot.
Which is a better avocado, Hass or Cold Hardy?
steveo on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Both are excellent, but there are some differences. The Cold Hardy Avocado has a flavor very similar to the Hass - rich and nutty, the classic avocado flavor. Also, the Cold Hardy is a slightly smaller tree and will take temperatures lower than the Hass, down to the lower 20's as opposed to mid to upper twenties for Hass. Of course, young trees are much more tender than older, established trees, so will need protecting or brought inside when the temperatures dip to the low 30's.
how long before it's started with fruits cold hardy avocado or Haas avocado?
marlyn on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have flowers for the 1st time and expect avocados this summer. Our tree is in a large pot,wintered in the green house with our lemon trees and keep it under a large fir to prevent any sun burn.
I live in texas where the weather is bipolar ;) What do I do about the hot and cold temperatures? Leave it outside during the summer and inside during winter? Thanks in advance!!!
Kelly H on Jun 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would depend on your zone whether you will want to make it a patio plant or plant it in the ground. Avocado trees do well outdoors in zones 9-11. Below is a hardiness zone map to see where you fall in TX.

Planted my hass avocado tree 4 months ago in so.calif.,when do I start to fertilize the tree?
Bigeddie on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Wait until your tree has experienced two to three months of growth before fertilizing it. Once it’s old enough give it a fertilizer that specifically says it’s for a citrus tree four times a year, once every season. Container trees need fertilizer every two months. Pay attention to the leaves, yellowing leaves can indicate nitrogen or iron deficiencies.
Is this a grafted tree?
Mike G on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. From my understanding you cannot grow from a seed. It had several fruit on it this year. I have a Florida avocado to pair with it. I'm still learning.
how deep do the roots grow?
lisa fontenot on Jun 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Most of the roots are within 60 cm of the surface. They usually spread out, not so much down. Mine are in a pot so they are limited by that depth.

Do I need two trees or are they self pollinating?
Jesse on Apr 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They say they are self pollinating, but for best results having 2 is best.. I bought a Haas and a cold hardy tree. I haven't had them long enough to have them bare fruit yet. We will see in a couple of years.
Is this a gmo plant?
Yellie on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There's no such thing as a genetically modified avocado.
If type A and B avocado trees cross polinate, will Hass avocado produce Hass avocados or can they produce Cold Hardy, and visa versa? Excuse me for such a niave question, I'm just trying to understand a male plant producing fruit.
Rev. K on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Rev.Kaelene
A Hass will be a Hass and a Cold Hardy is a Cold Hardy.The flowers are only open for 2 days
The flowers are divided into two types, A and B. The type of flowers on a tree is determined by the variety of avocado you are growing, such as a Hass and a Cold Hardy. A type flowers open their female parts during the morning of the first day and their male parts on the second day's afternoon. Type B flowers wait until the afternoon of the first day to open the female parts and open their male parts the following morning.
You have pollination when the pollen released from one set of flowers is received by the flowers from another tree with their female parts open and ready to receive the pollen. In most instances, bees carry the pollen from a type A tree to a type B tree. It's quite an amazing thing ! Thank you hope this clarifies things.
Can this plant be grown inside?
Mary L on Nov 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can be grown inside in a container, and many of our customers have enjoyed growing an avocado like this. You would start with a 12-inch pot and repot in a larger pot each year to 18 months until you get to a 24-inch size pot. Use a fast-draining potting mix like one for cactus or citrus. You will need 6-8 hours of direct sunlight, and proper watering is critical to success, as Avocados will not tolerate over watering nor under watering. If possible, it is good to set the plant outdoors for the summer, and bring it back in when temperatures get down to the 40's.
Is it possible to grow these trees indoors, year round? I live in southeastern Michigan.
Sherry S on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, make sure it's in a sunny spot.

Is 24/7 sunlight good for avocado trees? I know that other plants thrive with LED grow lights but I dont know about avocados and if so how do you adjust them without causing sun burn?
VicJo on May 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: V,
A couple of things to think about.
1. Full sun has been working great for my trees. Even though they do not require a lot of water if they are in pots, please make sure to water them as needed or they can become to dry and the soil will really heat up. If planted in the ground make sure that you do not over water them. Let them dry in between watering.
2. If they are in partial sun have them placed in the longest sun time. Usually west side for the longest. You really need to watch the amount of water at the beginning if not in total sun. They can become wilted looking and drop leaves if too moist.
Other then that very solid and hardy trees. Protect them during their first several years during the winter time/ freezing weather. They do not like that at all. Move them inside or wrap the trunk a lot.
I hope this helps,

Live in NJ. Started growing in winter indoors. Put it outside in April on patio after any frost. Will have to take indoors again in fall. Should I just keep indoors all the time or is putting out and in good for it?

BEST ANSWER: I live in texas, but my tree does better outside in dappled shade than indoors. I put it in full shade on a porch as the summer heat sets. Be sure to put it outside if you know it will rain. The rain water is so beneficial, especially if it's over a few days. Make sure it gets plenty of sun indoors.
If I have citrus trees do I need 2 avocado trees?

BEST ANSWER: No, citrus and avocado's are self pollinating, if you have two they will be more prolific.
When is the best time to repot and what soil do you recommend at store ?
Tony S on Sep 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Spring/Fall is a good time for transplanting. Line the bottom of the container with gravel to promote proper drainage. Place your Avocado Tree in the container and fill it in with citrus tree potting mix. Then give your tree water until you see it draining out the bottom of the pot.
