Product description

Persea americana or avocado is an evergreen tree that can grow up to 15 meters high. However, the tree can also be kept small by pruning.
Persea Americana likes to get its water regularly and needs little but regular nutrition during the summer months.
The avocado plant has few hair roots and is therefore not able to get its moisture from a too dry soil. Also make sure that it is not too wet, regular watering is fine.

In itself the avocado is not a separate tree and the bloom is also not spectacular. The inflorescence are clusters of yellow / green flowers that are about 1 cm in size.
These flowers smell strong. Only a small part of a large amount of flowers actually results in fruiting.
The elongated leaves of about 10 to 25 cm long still want to lose weight all year round. If above + 8ºC or higher than avocado plants are evergreen.
The Persea americana is self-pollinating.
