"This broad-spreading avocado makes a majestic shade or screening tree that rivals anything purely ornamental. It is so productive, fruit growing guru Louis Glowinski counted 200 fruits on his one tree! `Bacon' is a B-type avocado that thrives in Melbourne as well as further north and can improve pollination for `Hass' `Wurtz' and `Reed' varieties. The most suitable B-type for cooler areas. Grafted. "
