Avocado Trees For California

Grow your own Avocados in your back yard or front yard in the lawn, a hot sunny planter bed or outdoors in a large container.  Avocados are among the most tasty nutritious fruits that you can grow, and fresher is better. The Lamb Hass and Reed avocado trees are known among gardeners to be perfect for small areas and have excellent Hass flavor. Sir Prize Hass offers most gardeners the best choice for really tasty Hass tree because of its cold tolerance.

These awesome fruit trees can be easily grown in the proper climates. Most of our avocado trees are flowering age or fruit bearing trees. Small sized avocado trees take several years after planting to produce large crops of fruit. For this reason I strongly suggest you get a #15 size tree, most #15 or 15 gallon size trees produce large crops of fruit the year after planting. This way you will not be waiting 3 or 4 years for some little sapling to start making fruit.

In California we will deliver your order to your door, our mature trees are heavy, often in bloom or with fruit and difficult for retail buyers to handle. For that reason we do not do local pick ups. The premium avocado trees are brought to your door with about 15 minutes of helpful planting and growing advice.

Avocado trees make for HORRIBLE house plants for several reasons. If you are thinking of growing an avocado tree indoors, don't. If you are thinking of bringing in the avocado tree for the winter cold, don't. If you make an order for an avocado tree and it appears that you are trying to grow it indoors, your order will be voided. Greenhouse growing is possible but that also requires two trees for pollination and some bumble bees. - Thank you, Christopher Gilcrest.
