Although it is classified as a fruit, an avocado is not sweet. The flesh of a ripened avocado has a smooth, buttery texture and a subtle flavor.
Avocados are extremely popular in Mexican dishes. Mash them to make guacamole, slice them over a salad, puree them to add to soups!
They are also popular in vegetarian cuisine, too. They act as a substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of their high fat content.
Pollination & fruiting season
Your fruit ripens from August to October. They are ready to harvest when the fruit has reached its full color of dark green to black.
Avocados trees are self-pollinating, but they will produce even more with another avocado nearby.
Best time to plant
Plant your Avocado tree in the ground any time of year in the south, just as long as your soil is not frozen. Northern states can pot them in containers any time of year, but will need to bring them indoors during the winter. The older they get, the more cold tolerant they become. So it may be a good idea to offer a little more cold protection the first year.
