Hi all,

I bought a small 5 gal avocado tree at the Home Depot in Monrovia and having a difficulty figuring out what variety is that :(

A guy from the HD said is was a Haas, googling for dwarf Haas gave me nothing.

The lable says the following:

Dwarf Avocado
Hybrid Dwarf

Any ideas?

More likely than not it is 'Littlecado', aka 'Wurtz'.

Thank you, all!
Yes, I've done some research and it is a Little cado or Wurtz, like hoovb mentioned.
It is from the La Verne nursery:
