This is a tropical tree and will be sensitive to the cold below 32 degrees. It grows best outdoors in zones 8-11, but can be grown indoors or on patios in zones 4-11.
The Hass Avocado is the most popular avocado in America - known for its creamy, delicious texture used in guacamole, salads, and tacos.
Fun fact: Every single Hass Avocado tree comes from one single tree grown in California, and the tree is named after the original grower of this amazing fruit!

When planted outdoors, this tree can reach 10-15 feet in height. However, planting the Hass Avocado tree in a container will keep it to 5-7 feet in height.
When will the Hass Avocado tree fruit?

The Hass Avocado Tree will grow in partial shade but to produce avocados in abundance, choose a full sun spot for your tree.
Planting in Containers
When you receive your tree, water it well before planting. Choose a large pot or half-barrel to your tree in – something about 24 inches in diameter. Make sure the pot has drainage holes.
Planting in the Ground
It's best to plant the Hass Avocado tree between March and June - depending on where you live. Be sure to choose a spacious area. Give your tree about 15 feet of space from other trees and structures. When you receive your tree, water it well before planting. Dig a hole twice as large as the pot you purchased and about two inches deeper. Remove the tree from the pot and gently separate the roots, being careful not to break them. Fill in dirt around the tree and water well. Use mulch to cover the soil - this will help retain moisture and keep weeds away.
Water your young tree weekly for the first season. Once it is established it will tolerate drought well, but should be watered deeply during dry periods. This tree does prefer to stay on the dry side - prefering well-drained soil. With indoor trees, mist the leaves daily.
Fertilize your tree in spring, summer, fall, and winter using a balanced fertilizer like our Organic Root Rocket.
Lightly prune your Hass Avocado tree in the spring to maintain appearance or to remove damagned branches.
