The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Persea americana also know as Avocado is a small tree grown for its pear shaped fruit which loaded beneficial nutrients and fatty acids. They prefer rich well drained soils and don't tolerate wet feet. Young trees should be protected from frost. Avocados are categorized into 2 groups, A & B. For best results, plant at least one from each group in your garden
