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.

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.

And you’ll save time and money for seasons to come. Rather than heading to the supermarket for expensive produce, you’ll have delectable avocados right from home.

Who is Fast Growing Trees?

We are the largest mail-order nursery in the country, shipping bigger and better trees directly to your door.

Your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree has been grafted (with rootstock combined from a hardy, disease-resistant tree, and a mature tree) and grown in our greenhouse with care, so it’s happy and healthy from day one.

 

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.

Questions & Answers

When Will My Avocado Tree Fruit?

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!

Planting the Cold Hardy Avocado Tree

The Cold Hardy Avocado is specially adapted to cooler climates. They will grow in partial shade but prefer full sun when possible. They 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.

If you’re repotting your Cold Hardy Avocado, simply pick a planter that’s about twice the size of your tree’s shipped container, use organic soil mix, and place your tree.

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.

How I Fertilize My Cold Hardy Avocado Tree?

Feed young trees after one year of growth by using a balanced fertilizer four times yearly. Remember that unusual temperature changes or the transition from indoors to outdoors can cause Avocado Trees to drop leaves. Leaf drop is natural, and the tree will typically replace its foliage during its natural growing season.

How Do I Prune My Cold Hardy Avocado?

Cold Hardy Avocados need little to no training or pruning. You may wish to trim for shaping, but other than that, this tree is never pruned.

How Do I Pollinate My Cold Hardy Avocado?

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. We recommend pairing with the Hass Avocado for even more fruit!
