Mexicola Grande is an interesting avocado variety, which produces shiny black skinned fruit, with a bright yellow and green flesh. The fruit are larger than Mexicola, around the size of a Hass. The skin is very thin and edible, and they can be eaten like an apple. The tree is fast growing, very attractive and has larger leaves than most other avocado trees. Mexicola Grande is one of the most frost tolerant avocado varieties in the country, and is suitable for growing in coastal conditions.

Our trees are grafted and will begin flowering in spring. Mexicola Grande is an A flowering type, and although avocado trees in our climate are self fertile, they do produce more fruit if 2 are planted near each other with opposing flower types. In this case, best planted near a Fuerte, Bacon, Hashimoto, Zutano or Ettinger tree.

Avocado trees are generally easy to care for, but here are a few tips to help ensure your tree thrives:

  1. Plant your tree in well-draining soil in a sunny location. Protect from wind and frost when young.

  2. Water your tree regularly, but be careful not to over-water. Avocado trees prefer to be kept evenly moist, but not waterlogged. If planting in a clay soil, it is important to either create a mound, or build a raised planter box to plant your tree into. This helps keep the sensitive feeder roots out of the wet zone.

  3. Fertilise your tree with a balanced fertiliser twice a year, once in the spring and once in the summer.

  4. Prune your tree regularly to remove any dead or damaged branches, and to shape the tree to promote good fruit production.
