Growing Avocado – The Ideal Climate

Author : Elroy Tyner

The avocado fruit has a lot of health benefits. Many people are starting to take notice of this. As a result more and more avocado trees are being planted in backyards. This tree does not require a lot of care for it to survive. However there are certain guidelines that should be followed to ensure its survival.

First of all, people should understand that this tree is a tropical to subtropical tree. It thrives on regions with this type of weather. Areas with an alternating rainy and dry season are the most suitable places to grow it.

It takes patience to grow an avocado tree. On an average, it takes 10 years for it to reach a state of maturity that would allow it to bear fruits. However, grafted trees are able to bear fruit in just two years.

There are many things that you can do to give the tree a better chance to grow and survive. It should be planted deep into the soil. You can also add soil around its trunk and loosely wrap it with a piece of cloth or tarp.

This tree is most suitable on tropical regions, however, it can also survive on cooler and shaded areas. Just make sure that it is not exposed to very strong winds and cold climate. If you live on an area which has an extremely cold climate, it is best to grow it indoors and on containers.

Avocado is primarily popular because of its fruits. Besides its fruit bearing and health benefits, it can also be used as a decorative plant inside the house. For the first four to five years of its life, while it is still relatively small, the tree can be grown on containers inside the house. Although, you need to make sure that it is planted on good soil, watered properly and receives adequate sunlight.

More and more people are growing avocado trees due to the nutritional benefits of their fruits as well as for decorative purposes. Many more people do this to have a good supply of avocado for their recipes. Whatever reason it is, you have to follow these simple guidelines to ensure the survival of the tree and a harvest of sweet fruits.
