AVOCADO 'FUERTE'

Persea americana 'Fuerte'
Member $39.95
Non-Member $59.95
This B-Type avocado not only improves the pollination of A-Type varieties such as ‘Hass’ and ‘Wurtz’, but it also produces delicious pear-shaped fruit of its own from winter into spring. Often hailed as the tastiest of all avocados, ‘Fuerte’ is cold tolerant and was named after surviving freezing temperatures. With easy to peel fruit, cropping can be cyclical, bearing well every second year, but it’s well worth the wait. Grafted.
