The Most Popular Avocado on the Market

The popular, tasty Hass, now home-grown and ready to enjoy much sooner than seed-grown fruit. Supermarket trips are a thing of the past when you're growing your own Hass Avocado Tree at home. And because the Hass is so expensive in stores, you save time and money.

Best of all, our Hass Avocado fruit's unique flavor tastes better than store-bought. You'll save hundreds of dollars, especially since you can expect your tree to produce fruit year after year for 40+ years. The Hass's creamy inner flesh is delicious for everything, from classic uses in salads or guacamole to cooking and complementing the ever-popular avocado toast.

For best results (and to take the guesswork out of growing), we've taken hardy avocado rootstock and grafted it onto a cutting from a mature avocado tree, proven to produce delicious fruit. We've done all the work in our process, which results in robust avocado growth. Outdoors, this fruit-bearing tree will reach heights of 15 to 20 feet and a width of 5 to 8 feet at full maturity. But when it's container-grown, it will reach a height between 5 to 7 feet, allowing easy harvesting.

But what sets our Hass Avocado Tree apart?

  • Seed-grown trees could take up to a decade to produce fruit, or never product avocados - with our Hass, you can enjoy avocados now.
  • Your home-grown Hass Avocados will product the same delectable taste, season after season, since we've grafted our trees for consistent results.
  • You'll save time and money since you no longer have to buy store-bought fruit.

So, is there anything better than your own avocados, grown right from home and ready to enjoy? Order your Hass Avocado Tree today!

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...

My First Avocado Tree
Ordered my Hass on 12-16-18 and received it on 12-19. It came in packaged well with no damage and in a very healthy condition. I potted it with plans to move it outdoors in late spring for it's summer home. It will stay next to the Cold Hardy tree I will plant in the yard. in early March. I hope having a A and B pollinator will increase the chances for a good crop of fruit even if they are separated part of the year

We love our Avocado Tree!
I was very pleased with the tree. I tracked it during the shipment and noted the carrier held it longer than I would expect. I was concerned it would arrive damaged, however it looked great. Because of our weather being cold (at least for us!), I decided to re-pot it and keep it indoors until late winter early spring.

Keeping fingers crosd
The tree was well packaged and arrived in good condition despite the carriers inability to observe the UP arrows and handling instructions on box. Being upside down the dirt had fallen from the pot and loose inside. The tree though seemed no worse for wear and appears to be happy in the spot I chose to plant it. We'll see what happens as it matures.

I like the trees. Both root balls were very loose, about 50 to 60 %fell away when I potted them into 15 gallon cloth pots, so they appear to the be almost bareroot. The leaves perked up nicely. Buds have not swollen or shown growth yet, 3.5 weeks. All in all very well worth the money.
Hass in the lean-to.  Right at 5 foot in 15 gallon bag.

Planting & Care



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


Hass Avocado Tree Planting Diretions

The Hass Avocado Tree is a low-maintenance tree that will save you a lot of money, enabling you to grow large numbers of delicious avocados on your own.  The Hass is typically the same avocado you buy at your local grocery store.  Follow these simple instructions to successfully harvest your own fruit right in your garden.

Location: Although partial sun will suffice, to produce avocados in abundance, make sure you choose a planting area that gives your Hass Avocado Tree full sun.  Spacing with the Hass is important as well.  Give your avocado tree about 15 feet of space from other trees and plants.

Planting Instructions:
1) Plant your Hass Avocado Tree when the ground is warm.  The best months for planting are typically March through June depending on where you live.
2) Dig a hole twice as large as the tree's root system. Remove any sod surrounding the planting area in a 3- to 10-foot circle to prevent the tree from competing with grass for much needed nutrients.
3) Carefully plant the tree and cover the roots. Tamp the soil down around the tree's root system to remove all air pockets.
4) Using a small diameter wooden pole, stake the tree with a garden stake and tie the tree to the pole loosely using cotton twine. This will help keep the tree protected during windy conditions.
5) Apply 3 inches of bark chips around the tree to help with moisture retention and prevent the growth of weeds.


Watering: When planting, water your young avocado tree to be sure it is sufficiently hydrated. Otherwise allow the soil to dry between waterings.  Avocados do not like wet feet.  A thorough watering once weekly is generally all your avocado needs, however.

While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, avocado leaves love humidity.  Indoor Avocados will do best if misted daily especially when you are running heat during cooler months.  You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot's saucer with rocks and add water; place your plant on the rocks ensuring the bottom of the pot is above the water line.

Pruning: Prune the Haas avocado lightly to maintain appearance or to remove damaged branches during the first few years after planting.  Pruning should be done in the spring.  

Fertilizer: Fertilize the Hass Avocado tree in the spring, summer, fall and winter, after the tree has been planted for one year using a well-balanced fertilizer.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

how can I transplant my avocado tree? The tree is 4 years full grown. I need an advice
Helio A on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: So sorry to not get back to you until now! I am assuming you are growing your tree in the ground. Transplanting should take place in spring to early summer, when the ground is warm but before summer heat sets in; if you did not transplant already, wait till fall. Dig a hole 3 times as wide and as deep as your root ball and break up the soil you dug out and loosen the surface of your hole. Place the soil back in t the hole - do NOT fertilize. Dig a hole in the loosened soil slightly bigger than the root ball, clip any roots growing in a circle around the root ball and ease the ball into the hole. Fill in around the root ball with dirt, apply a 3-4 inch layer of coarse wood mulch to the area around the tree, leaving a 3-6 inch gap around the trunk. Water deeply. Be sure to pick a sunny, well-drained site. They love sandy loam, so if you have clay, you will need to amend you soil with composted leaves and dig the hole even bigger than mentioned above, and you should consider creating a raised bed for your avocado.
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.

I live in zone 5 and I'd like to grow 2 in our greenhouse. What temperatures are best for them to be happiest?
CatSimon on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I grew up in California in a area that had many yard avocados. The average yearly temperatures are around 60 degrees as the low. 80 degrees as the average high. Of course you do have days of extreme cold and heat but that the exception. Establish trees can take care of themselves but not the young ones you need to shade them and protect them from direct sun.
To answer your question they would be happy between 60 degrees and 80 degrees hope it helps .

When I get my tree do I remove the stick attached to my tree?
Deana C on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it's not necessary to remove the stick. The stick provides support to the tree and if removed incorrectly may damage the root ball. Once the tree is established it will be easier to remove the stick.
I live in Florida, zone 9, our soil is basically sugar sand. What will I have to do to my soil prior to planting?
Ron J on Nov 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ron. Having the same issue where I live, I suggest mixing compost with the sand 50/50. In addition, if you are in a coastal flood zone, you may want to elevate the area where you are planting. I purchased 3 trees from this site, and they were doing very well until we had flooding that put the trees roots under salt water for about 3 days. Needless to say, they didn't survive that. 2 of them did sprout back, but not on the grafted trunk, so they will probably never produce fruit.
Do I need to buy two do produce avocados?
Tristan on Oct 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hass avocado trees are self-pollinating so you don't need another tree to get fruit. You will get fruit with just one tree. However, if you get a different type of avocado tree, you will get a lot more avocados. Look under pollinator info to see what kinds work well together.
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.
