Here's a pic if my uncles avocado tree!! The variety is unknown but it's the best I've ever eaten, it's a big fruit very buttery high oil content, my uncle moved into this house 55 yrs ago and the tree was already 40 yrs old so I guess this tree would be about 95 yrs old, it is about 40 ft tall( he trims it alot) right now it has a lot if blooms!

If it's a seedling, it would be good to have someone graft it onto new rootstock. You might have a winning new variety on your hands!

RE: Uncles avocado

john, im pretty sure its a seedling, i have a few rootstock that im waiting for to mature so i can graft some budwood from this tree its a very good avocado for here in hawaii very buttery, kind of big, slight oblong shape, and very beautiful purple color. And thanks i will become a member on tropicalfruitforum, and thats to bad your sons dont have the same interest, im glad i have this hobby, it runs through my veins my whole family have an agriculture back ground and including a green thumb. For me its a learning process and very fun hobby that i hope to become my job in the future.

RE: Uncles avocado

Aloha. Good luck, Brennan! Both with the avocado variety and your future plans. My younger son, who is studying to be an engineer, says someday he wants to have a large enough place to grow most of his own food so I guess there's hope for him, although I might have to become his gardener-in-residence!
