So, this is what a newly formed avocado looks like. Right now, they are about the size of a pencil eraser.
The tree is very tall and has lots of new fruit.......I hope they don't get blown away during hurricane season.
Then we will have to go to TIMBUKTU to get them. Or Smithereens.
The wild sunflower is racing with the avocado tree.......the tree will win because as soon as I can get to the back yard to do some work, the sunflowers are history.
Aren't the new little fruits lovely?
The season has to work out JUST right, or there is no fruit. If the leaves get frost-bit/frozen in the winter, they will fall off. Then in the Spring when the tree should be putting on fruit, instead it has to make leaves.
This year, so far, so good. I planted this from a seed mainly on a whim. Now it's almost 20 feet tall. I read that they really should be made into a bush instead of a tall tree. I'll have to work on that......
