  • We can ship our "Other Edibles" (non-citrus plants) and growing accessories to most states, including Texas, Arizona or Florida.

  • In order to insure the highest quality upon arrival, we ship on Mondays and Tuesdays.  

 

  •  These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 24-36” tall, with a trunk diameter between 1/4-1/2 inch.
  • Within a month of delivery we suggest repotting into a larger (10"-12" diameter) container or planting directly in the ground. Ultimately, avocado trees will be happiest and most productive when planted in the ground.
  • Like citrus trees, avocado trees appreciate well aerated soil that retains moisture and also drains well.  Provide full sun, regular feeding and good drainage to keep the tree happy and productive.
