Did you know that you can pick when your avocado tree fruits? Summer, fall, or winter- the choice is yours. We select cold-tolerant varieties -the size of the tree and its fruit can vary. Feel free to consult with Don about what's available and what avocado tree best suits your space.
Do you want an avocado tree and aren't sure where to plant it? These trees can take the heat. Plant in full sun for best results, don't plant it too deep. In other words, plant it...don't bury it. Last, but most important with avocado- excellent drainage. No stones or rock or weed barrier should be used around your fruit trees. Please keep the area under your fruit tree canopy clear, water regularly, and use a nice time release fertilizer. Many fruiting trees love our climate, but may not fruit well without food and water.
Mango trees are also available. We have Carey, Cogshall, Pickering, Glenn, 76, Valencia Pride and a few other varieties also in stock. They are grafted. Please remember that mango trees are more cold sensitive than most avocado. They also blossom in the winter, so make sure you are in a warm enough spot for these wonderful tasty fruiting trees before planting one. When in doubt- most yards tend to be warmest on the south or west side. Mango trees fruit in the summer, a most delicious reward for those sweating out the summer in Florida :)
Speaking of sweating- if you find it too hot to catch up with us at the farmers markets please contact Don to schedule your visit to the nursery. (941) 276-7758 is Don's cell number.
