AVOCADO 'FUERTE'

AVOCADO 'FUERTE'

Persea americana 'Fuerte'
Member $39.95
Non-Member $59.95
A "B-Type" avocado which not only improves the pollination of "A-Type" varieties such as 'Hass' and 'Wurtz', but also produces delicious pear shaped fruit of it's 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.
