Avocado Male Female, producer prices, Avocado general information:
Mexico’s subspecies is the most tolerant of cold, while Western India is the most sensitive. Western India is more suitable in warm tropical areas and is poorly tolerant to cold. Unlike Guatemala in terms of tolerance, it is superior to the cold between Mexico and West Indies.
The flowers of the avocado are greenish and hermaphrodite, but are characterized by unusual behavior. Flowers can open in the morning with the female part accepted, but they do not release pollen. Then the flower closes and does not open again until the afternoon of the next day, so it opens and releases pollen, but the stigma is no longer acceptable. The flower closes definitively in the evening. Flowers behaving in this way are called type A. If the female part of the flower is acceptable in the afternoon and the male part releases pollen the next morning, then the flowers are called type B. Each variety is characterized by type A or B flowers. Avocados are fruitful when the co-cultivation of A and B varieties is ensured. The pollen is transported by the bees and therefore their presence during the blooming period is necessary. At least one beehive per 1 acre is required.
