GENERAL INFORMATION

  • The avocado, a tree likely originating from south-central Mexico, is classified as a member of the flowering plant family Lauraceae.
  • The fruit of the plant also called an avocado, is botanically a large berry containing a single large seed.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Avocados like loose, rich, well-draining soil.
  • The soil may need to be sandy to accommodate the tree's large roots and fast-draining so that the roots do not succumb to root rot fungus.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Avocados need nitrogen, first and foremost, and a little zinc.
  • You can use a citrus tree fertilizer as an avocado fertilizer or go organic and use compost, coffee, fish emulsion, etc.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Avocado plants thrive in full sun.
  • If you're starting from a seed, the seed can be kept on a bright windowsill until roots form, and the first leaves emerge.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • The rule of thumb for mature trees is about 20 gallons of water a day during the irrigation season.
  • Check the soil before watering each time to make sure it has dried somewhat.
