Mature Avocado trees

Hi everyone, this is my first post on 'Teak Door'.

I am living near Korat City and was wondering if there is anyone kind enough to allow me to pinch a few very small cuttings off their mature tree (Haas Avocado preferably) so I could graft some seedlings that I will prepare shortly. I have about 7 Rai and hope to put a few trees on the property - I will guarantee a life time supply of Avo's (if you want them) when you come over for a BBQ.

I would appreciate any info anyone could supply me.

Great to be part of your forum and thank you in advance.

HalC.

Hal, if you search within this Farming & Gardening sub-forum you'll find a couple of decent threads pertaining to avacados in Thailand...

Might be helpful.

Cuttings is the way to go. I have two mango trees in the garden, both from cuttings, 2 and 4 years old respectively. Both are bearing huge amounts of fruit, while my neighbor's 7 year old trees, which were not from cuttings, are barren.

Your best bet to find cuttings will be in the Khao Yai/Pak Chong area not far from Korat. There are plenty of avacadoes growing there. Doubt you will find Hass but 4 or 5 other varieties. Suggest you look and ask around to find an orchard. Ask the owner and sure they will have no objection to letting you have a few cuttings.

That's how I got mine. Still no fruit.

Are Mangos and Avocados from the same family?

No. I don't believe that any common fruit is closely related to the avacado. But I think the use of cuttings for more rapid bearing of fruit might well apply to avacado as well.

Can you use root germ on avos and grow from that to bear fruit early?

If you get a source let me know. We are also near Korat and my wife would like to have a few trees for our own use.

I am looking for Haas only but I want to buy and transplant a well started tree from graft and replant in great soil and condition on Koh Phuket. Any help with that would be appreciated. I spent time in Chiang Mai and was able to buy wonderful Avocados at the market every week. What a pleasure.

I have two Avocado trees growing in my front garden here in Perth, both have grown from seeds I have thrown in the garden.

Actually I had quite a few come up but kept these two as they where the strongest.

There around 3 years old now and one has sent a branch up that's now 3 meters friggin high and still going.

How high do these things grow ???

When mine died in the flood it was up and above the top of my two story house. So what 11 meters or more, and wide around as well. Miss it a lot, the new yard does not protect my balcony from the strong sun during the hot season. They are great shade trees. 7 years mine was, no fruit but great shade, and no leaves falling off.

Grown only for shade, and hoping it might produce. I can see keeping them smaller, denser and wider if its grown for the fruit. This was a huge avocado I stole from near my house. I mean the size of 4 Hass at least. The best native one I had had. So out came the seed, in went the toothpicks and into the glass it went. Planted and it grew. I will look for a photo tomorrow. I am sure I have one pre flood.

I've got three down, striplings. Will be a few years before I know if I will get any fruit. Anyway, lets see if they survive rainy season...

I have one grafted avocadotree growing now, it is small but looks fine. The seller could not name the variety.

Matt i would plant that tree in full soil before the roots go circling around in the bucket.

You can transport scions in a plastic bag with a damp towell and keep it cool.

Hass is not a western-Indian avocado so it needs a cooler temp then let's say in Phuket.
