Grow Healthy Avocados Anywhere
Healthful benefits, rich taste and tropical-inspired vibes. The Day Avocado Tree epitomizes what everybody loves about avocados.
And with this must-have tree, you can enjoy your very own, home-grown and fresh avocados, even if you don't live in a tropical climate.
The perks of the Day Avocado are endless, but for starters, it's the easiest-to-pot cultivar because of its small size. Grow yours on the patio or indoors, from growing zones 4 to 11.
Plus, the Day Avocado Tree is self-pollinating, so you don't need multiple varieties. However, if you grow your Day Avocado near a Hass or Cold Hardy Tree, both trees will become more productive!
Even better? The Day Avocado has a long harvest. Many fruits only harvest for a short period, but you might find your Day Avocados ready to pick from July through September.
Also, some avocado trees are sensitive to cold temperatures, but this tree is cold hardy all the way down to 30 degrees. Grow it on the patio and bring it inside to place near a sunny window when the temperature drops.
Or, if you live in zones 9 though 11, plant your Day Avocado Tree outdoors to add a beautiful, functional botanical to your garden.
Best of all, the delectable avocados this tree provides have a richer, buttery taste when they're freshly picked from a tree. Their delicious taste meets a bevy of nutritional benefits and health advantage, including lower cholesterol for you. And you'll save hundreds of dollars each year when you grow your own Day Avocados.
For all of these rewards and more, order your own Day Avocado Tree today!

Least high maintenance of any avocado
This bad boy is the toughest type of avocado I've ever had. I've moved him several times and never had a leaf drop. Wonderful tree. I think will be big enough for fruit soon and I didn't even buy the biggest one
Arrived looking a bit worse for wear and promptly desired likes new home. Have five inches of new growth in a month. Our youngest checks it daily. As a plant person she does very well.
I received my trees in record time however my avocado tree looks so sad. I hope it perks up. I will give it a week before I contact customer service. It was very big and green although the branches looked limp. I will update stars once I find out what's going on with my avocado tree. My cherry tree came in beautiful shape!
It arrived alive!
The tree arrived alive and still is. I haven't repotted it as it is happy on the porch right now. I'll repot it before winter and the move into the greenhouse.
I really haven't had my tree long enough to know how it's going to be. It arrived in good shape but I was not impressed with the kit I ordered with it. Since this tree will be inside in the winter I'll never use the kit. So far it seems to be doing well and the leaves have stopped falling off from the shock of being shipped.
Planting & Care
Planting Instructions (in ground): If you live in zones 9-11, plant your Day Avocado in a spot that receives full sun and has well-draining soil. Amend the soil with organic matter and place in a small hole as deep but twice as wide as the root ball. Add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and protect from weeds. Lightly water after planting to settle the roots.
Planting Instructions (in pot): Plant your Day Avocado in a 24-inch pot with holes or a porous container lined with plastic. Allow the tree to sit in the sun for at least 6 hours each day. When temperatures drop below 23, bring it indoors and set it near a sunny window.
Watering: Water frequently and lightly as opposed to infrequent and deeply.
Fertilization: Add the first year, you can use add nitrogen-based citrus fertilizer.
Pruning: No pruning is necessary, but if you bring your potted plant inside, it may drop some leaves that you'll need to clean up.
Harvesting: Avocados do not ripen on the tree. Instead, you'll need to wait until the color darkens slightly and then pick them. Place them on a counter and then do a taste test after 3 days. Day Avocados will take 3-7 days to ripen off the branch, so a taste test is the best way to know when they're ripe.
