Little Cado Dwarf Avocado Tree


Avocados like loose, rich, fast-draining organic soil. Avocado trees prefer full sun, but young trees need some protection from hot sun until they develop dense foliage. Keep soil conistently moist, never soggy or dry.  Water however you need to do based on your location to attain this. Place the Little Cado either in the ground, or in large container for easy reach. Pair this tree with the Holiday avocado, our other dwarf offering for extended crop. They are also sensitive to cold and may require protection from frost. Avocados are often alternate-bearing.
