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
January 1, 2013
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.

I was very disapointed to recieve this tree as a couple days after arrival the rest of the leaves dropped off. Upon opening the package there were many leaves that had already dropped off but I figured that was from shipping but not so I guess as they all dropped off and it tried to leaf out but those did not make it either. It finally died and now I have to take a pic to send for replacement. Perhaps the next one will do as well as its anticipated companion.

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.
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.
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.
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 this plant grow in Yuma az?
Karen H on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I haven't been able to get mine to grow in San Diego CA. I've had mine a year and it hasn't grown an inch. The tree arrived as a twig/vine and I've done all I can to get it to grow. Good Luck.
How close do the trees need to be for cross pollination?
byron54 on Mar 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you plant them in pots they should be 2-3 ft apart depending on the size of the tree and if the are planted in the ground 12 to 15 ft apart.

Hope this helps

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

BEST ANSWER: It can take 4-5 years to produce.
My tree is 3 years old and blooms all over but the blooms never set, what's going on with my tree ?
Wildman on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Your tree might just be going through adolescent growing pains: frequently, a young avocado's first blooms will fall off the first year, then it will produce a few fruit the next year, and then go on to produce more and more each year.You can do some things to help the process. If your tree was indoors, you might need to help pollination along by hand pollinating with a small artist's paint brush, once in the morning and once in the afternoon on each flower. Also, don't use a fertilizer with much nitrogen when you are trying to get fruit set, because it encourages foliage growth at the sacrifice of fruiting. A fertilizer made specifically for avocados would be good. One final observation; avocados always produce a lot more blooms and baby fruit than make it to maturity, which is part of mother nature making sure that even after weaker or flawed fruit don't drain the tree, and also that there aren't so many fruits that the tree cannot support their growth.
When would the best time of year be to plant a haas avocado in central California zone 9? We live in Manteca, CA
Arlene R on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The best time to plant outdoors is between March and June. Fall is also a good time, but planting outdoors in summer can cause sun damage because small plants can't take up water very well when young.

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.
Can you plant avacado trees in pots?
Fred N on Feb 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can plant your Avocado tree in a pot. If you live on the east coast you will need to bring your potted Avocado tree inside and place it near a sunny window. The pot you choose should be about twice the size as the tree you order. The pot can be bigger than that but not smaller.

Hope this helps

2- Mine seems to get quite droopy when it gets any direct sunlight (via windows) despite being kept quite moist. Am I missing something? I thought they liked a few hours of sun.

BEST ANSWER: In my brief experience the Haas did drop some of its leaves when I kept it, a well as a cold tolerant avocado tree in my greenhouse over the winter of 2014. That was the year that I bought the Haas. Neither dropped all of their leaves however. The problem was that they completely flowered while in the greenhouse but, absent wind and bees, did not set single avocado. So, over the 2015 winter, I left both trees out doors (I live in far northwest Louisiana along the route of interstate I20 and 15 miles from the Texas border.). I covered them with a plastic drape over the few coldest days, which dropped briefly to the mid 20's. The cold hardy is supposed to be tolerant of high teens but the Hass likes mid 20's or higher. Both survived, perhaps partly because of the drape, and both heavily flowered again . Both set some fruit but dropped most of them. What did not drop were attacked by squirrels, as are my pears, plums figs and any other fruit. Too, they are still relatively young and potted so I hope to do better next year. I plan to leave them out, or covered unless the temp drops unexpectedly low and I have a bee hive this year. I have my fingers crossed. T. Siskron III
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.
What npk fertilizer is recommended?
Mike k on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fertilize the Hass Avocado tree in the spring, summer, fall and winter, after the tree has been planted for one year using a citrus fertilizer like Espoma Citrus-Tone.
