Fuerte Avocado


A California winter variety that is "Fuerte", Spanish for strong, due to it's resistance to freezing.

Avocados like fast-draining organic soil. Avocado trees prefer full sun but young trees need some protection from hot sun until they develop dense foliage. Water avocados on a regular basis during warm seasons. Avocados do not like cold damp soil and can easily develop root rot if they remain wet for long periods. They are also sensitive to cold and may require protection from frost. Avocados are often alternate-bearing. Learn more about how to grow avocado trees in Planting & Care.
