Avocado – Persian American

Avocado-Crete-chania-Greece

Variety Photos Greece Crete. The name “Avocado” comes from the nouns ahuacacuauhitl which means testicle tree!

Avocado is a dense, evergreen tree, which throws many leaves early in the spring. They are rapidly growing, and generally twigs to form a broad tree. Some varieties are columnar, others selected for almost uniform form. Growth shows frequent hot flashes during warm weather in the southern regions with only a long drop per year in cooler areas.

Grafted plants usually produce fruit within one to two years compared to 8 to 20 years for seedlings.

Avocado flowers are crossed, which means that the development of independent genetic lines is difficult. In fact, in flowers, the cross-right is promoted by the stigma of a flower that is receptive to the pollen before the pollen is released from the same flower. Avocado trees produce thousands of flowers and only one in 5,000 sets fruit. Considering it comes from South American forests, Avocado is admirable in its ability to thrive in a wide range of environmental conditions. It needs water and frost and prefers ungrounded, non-sensitive soils, sun and dry air.

The flesh of avocado is deep green near the skin, becomes yellowish closer to the single large, inedible oval seed. The flesh is tough when harvested but soft in a buttery texture. Friction caused by the wind can cause scarring on the skin, creating cracks that extend into the flesh. “Cukes” are seedless, round fruits. Out-of-season fruit should not be harvested with the main crop, but left in the tree to mature. The seeds can germinate in an avocado when it is over-mature, causing internal molds and damage.

High in monosaccharides, the avocado oil content is second only to the olives between the fruits, and sometimes higher. Clinical dietary studies in humans have shown that avocado oil can lower cholesterol in the blood. Avocado fruits are an important food in South America and are nutritious with high levels of mainly unsaturated oils, minerals, vitamins and reasonable levels of protein. The oil is obviously similar in composition to olive oil.

Types of avocados

W – Western Indian type avocados produce huge, smooth round, glossy green fruits that are low in oil and weigh up to 2 pounds. This is summer or fall-maturing. They have skin, flexible, non-granular skin. The leaves are not fragrant. They are grown in Florida, West Indies, the Bahamas, Bermuda and the tropics of the Old World. They are not grown in California.

G – Guatemalan types produce medium oval or pear, pearly green fruits that turn black-green when mature. Guatemalan avocados are mainly winter and spring ripening. The skin varies from thin to very thick and is granular or granular. The flesh is rich in taste and relatively high in oil. Cultivated in Florida and California.

M – Mexican varieties – the fruits are small (6 – 10 ounces) with fine-grained paper that becomes glossy green or black when ripe. The tender skin adheres to the flesh.The flesh has a high oil content of up to 30%. The leaves have a strong odor resembling anise and favored for cooking. The tree is more resistant to cooling.

Very cold avocado hard varieties ( PDF version )

Variety Photos Greece Crete. Avocado with cold lipstick is of Mexican origin. She is self-confident. They have thin, tender skin that adheres to the flesh. The flesh has a high oil content of up to 30%.Some varieties have leaves with a strong odor resembling anise. These avocados are known to be grown around San Antonio, Texas (Zone 8b). The avocado planted there was damaged, but it was not killed in 10F. As a general rule, these varieties can tolerate temperatures up to 15F for a short time without significant damage.

Important things to keep in mind:

  1. Small plants are very tender and sensitive to cold. When the freezer is expected, pivot the casing around the trunk for extra protection. Cover the tree with a blanket. During severe freezes, add a series of lights or a small heater under the covers. Mature trees are more resistant to cooling and do not need this extra protection.
  2. Cold tolerance depends on many factors. The location of the facilities and the protection from the wind are very important. Install a tree, so it will be protected from cold wind, which is much more dangerous than the cold itself. Avocado plants in the warmest location in the residential landscape, usually on the south or southeast side of the house.
  3. Healthy, well-groomed, plants are more tolerant.
  4. Very important: Moisture plays an important role. In general, plants grown in areas with dry winter of low humidity are colder tolerant than plants grown in the wet winter region. For example, a plant can withstand 10-15F in dry Texas climate, but can tolerate only 15-20F in a humid climate on the East Coast. Avocados need very little water during the cooling. It is very sensitive to excessive watering. There is no quicker way to kill the plant than excessive water during the cold season.Good drainage is the most important factor to consider when planting an avocado tree. In areas with poor drainage, create a soil embankment and plant the tree on the embankment.

Brazos Belle: Produces medium-sized, purple-black long fruit. Period: October-November.
