Product Description

The Go-To Avocado Tree for Cold Climates

Why Cold Hardy Avocado Trees?

Home-grown avocados, no matter where you live. With the Cold Hardy Avocado Tree, it's possible. This strong tree withstands frigid temperatures as low as 20 degrees, living up to its name.

Simply plant your Avocado Tree in a container and bring it inside during the winter months - it will continue to grow. You’ll get an abundant yield of fruit, year after year, and even faster than you would with seed-grown varieties. Basically, the Cold Hardy Avocado's fast growth means you're going to enjoy your avocados in at least three years instead of the 10 years or more it takes to grow fruit from seedlings.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

-Our Cold Hardy Avocado Tree is a proven performer.

-We've hand-picked the best, healthiest varieties to ship to your door.

-Because they've been grafted (with rootstock combined from a hardy, disease-resistant tree, and a mature tree) and grown in our greenhouse with care, they're happy and healthy from day one to your door.

-With our largest Cold Hardy Avocado Trees, you may get fruit as soon as the first year...perfect for those who want to harvest their home-grown avocados as soon as possible!

-We carry three varieties of the Cold Hardy Avocado: the Mexicola, the Brogdon and the Bacon. You will receive one of the three when you order, but rest assured that each variety delivers the rich, buttery flavor and carefree, hardy growth that make the Cold Hardy Avocado famous.

Superior flavor from a superfood. Is there anything better? The texture and taste of store-bought simply can't compare. Whether you're making homemade guacamole or the ever-popular avocado toast, the bold flavor is amazing. And the second-to-none taste isn't the only benefit you'll reap because they're loaded with vitamins A, B6, C, E.

So, the Cold Hardy Avocado Tree is one of the most versatile trees on the market. For a larger tree, plant it outdoors and watch it soar to heights of 15 to 20 feet. Or, for a shorter tree, plant in a container and you can limit growth to between 5 and 7 feet in height. Many growers find this method optimal for moving the tree between indoors and out.

Our larger sizes commonly bear fruit their very first year. And your tree will be more forgiving and easier to grow indoors or out. But demand from new orchards and home growers has put this tree in short supply. We recommend that you order yours today while larger sizes are still available!

Pollination Info

Cold Hardy Avocado Tree Pollination

Cold Hardy 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...

Planting & Care

1. Planting: The Cold Hardy Avocado is specially adapted to our cooler climates. They will grow in partial shade but prefer full sun when possible. And the skin of the fruit is paper-thin, and purple-black in color - they have high-quality flesh with a large amount of oil and are hardy to about 20-degrees once established.

Water the tree well before planting, then dig a hole larger than the pot you purchased it in and 1 to 2 inches deeper. Remove the tree from the pot and separate the roots, careful to avoid breakage. Water the tree and fill in the dirt as you water. Cover the new soil with mulch to retain moisture and keep weeds away.

2. Watering: Cold Hardy Avocado Trees may not need to be watered during the winter season or rainy months, but watch for extended mid-winter dry spells. Watch soil moisture carefully at the end of the irrigating season. Make sure the soil has dried out before winter arrives.

3. Fertilizing: Commence feeding young trees after one year of growth by using a balanced fertilizer four times yearly. Unusual temperature changes can cause plants to drop leaves. Leaf drop is natural and the plant will typically replace its foliage during its natural growing season.

4. Pruning: Cold Hardy Avocados need little to no training. You may wish to trim the tree’s skirts to deter small critters, but other than that, this tree is never pruned.

5. Pollination: 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, your Avocados will each produce more fruit with two trees.

When Do I Water My Cold Hardy Avocado Tree?

Cold Hardy Avocado Trees may not need to be watered more than once weekly during the summer and monthly during winter, but we do recommend keeping an eye out for extended mid-winter dry spells. Keep your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree away from heating vents, and ensure the soil stays moist around two inches down.

If you’re not sure when to water, just use your finger to check for dryness about two or three inches down. If the soil is dry here, water your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree.

Nice looking tree! Cold Hardy Avocado

Was a little worried because of the time it took to receive the tree here in California but the tree was packaged great and when I opened it the tree was in great shape. Gave it a drink and transplanted two days later. Two weeks later and I think it only lost one leaf. I bought a Haas last year from Fast Grwing Trees and that one lost a lot of leaves but since then it has grown about 2 frrt and is bushier than I could ever believe. I had to cut 3 branches off because they were growing down below the pot but you would not even notice. I plant my trees in big tubs that I get from Target, like the ones we used to store our kids toys in. I drill 1/2 inch holes all around the bottom edge and a bunch on the bottom for drainage. I am looking forward to avocados next year for sure. I actually got blooms and avocados on my Hass this year (the first year) but I pulled them off so the tree would grow bigger instead of putting all of it's nutrients and growth to the avocados. You guys are awesome! Keep up the good work!!!

Cold hardy avocado

Easy purchase. Good price. I received the cold hardy and hass avocado. The hass avocado tree came ok. Was a little dry and lost some leaves, but the cold hardy avocado took a beating during shipping only 4 leaves left on it, but it looks like it will make it. I hope. It was shipped well, with plastic wrap around the base to help retain the moisture. I’m sure it was just the blazing Texas heat that got to it during shipping process.

It looks like some stress from the transit and heat but the tree should begin to recover and start pushing out new leaves soon. Please keep us posted on its progress!
