    Avacado

    Hmmmmm.....arrived home yesdy and misus said she made avacado dip for me for lunch....cheese, tomatoes (grown on the plantation) and covered in Avacado....all on a famous Salada bikky.

    My god the dip tasted good, best she has ever made and best I have ever tasted.....added a nice sprinkling of cracked black pepper...hmmmmmm



    I know what i will be getting for lunch one day next week.....maybe I can cover it with Avacado also...


    Oh and the juice in the background is homemade also.....waeseom stuff....figured this is what is giving me green pooh.
    I like poisoning my neighbours dogs till they die cos I'm a cnut

    I love avacado dip. Only problem here in the Philippines is that you never can find one until they come into season, and then you end up eating them every day for a couple of months. Not much on shelf life.

    ^^Hadn't thought of that. They are nice looking, maybe I'll plant one in the garden. How big was yours when you planted it? Do they grow slow? How long until fruit bearing?

    if you get a grafted one, they take 3 to 4 years I think to fruit.

    They are not easy to care for, drainage the most important.

    Looks very appetising and healthy to me. A few drops of cold (flax) oil will balance the cheese (for me).

    Thanks all. Think I'll try one - if I can find a spot for it in a garden which is increasingly filling up.

    I planted one in the garden in a former life here. It grow into a beautiful tree (and still is) but never produced fruit. I was told afterwards that they need to be planted in pairs for the cross germination....a myth?

    Not an expert but have had single trees produce a lot of fruit so planting in pairs must be a myth. Avocados are among the few trees which have both male and female flowers. The flowers bloom everyday day alternating between male and female. If a tree is not fruiting, suspect flowering or cross pollination is just not happening.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Maybe not as stated in the link but I did have a single tree which did well.

    Davis, check the link re avocado in the Philippines. Has some good tips.

    I remember eating them daily in Australia, but think they are way overpriced in Thailand. Is there a Season for them here?

    Yes. Should be coming up in the next month or two. The area Nawty lives in has a good variety selection. That's why I asked him if they were in season but he has ignored the question.

    I don't know, we get them free from a tree at my wife school, and we also buy some from a market, I do not think they are as good as the California, Florida Hass or the Mexican avacados, but these here are half the size of a watermellon for 5 baht.

    I agree the best in Thailand come from Pakchong. But they are not the hass variety which I prefer. Just keep on waiting with mine. Sure does provide a lot of shade.

    Hey, I know that girl.

    The avocados I got in Petchabun a few months back were as good as I've had. There were 3 varieties. Big and small ones were OK and made great guacamole but the darker medium size were the best. Could eat just like apples and I did. Missus bought 20 kgs for 190 baht. I ate bacon, avacado and tomato sandwiches. Enchilada casseroles with plenty of avocado on top. Tacos and burritos slathered in the stuff. Avocado salad. Crab Louis with avocado.

    Damn I'm hungry. Can't wait to get back when they are in season.

    Let me know when they are in season again BG. Should be soon.
