    • These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 18-36” tall, with a trunk diameter between 1/4-1/2 inch. They are planted in a 5x12" grower's pot.
    • 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.
