Reply Greg Alder on February 21, 2021 at 3:22 pm Hi Eva, I read that it’s an A type, but I don’t grow the tree and haven’t observed this for myself. Reply Rayna on February 20, 2021 at 11:07 am Hi! Love your posts! I currently have a Holiday and was just told by an arborist that I could put an another avocado in a spot that is between south and north facing walls along a driveway. it will have some shade from the adjacent 2 story house. Are there avocados that would do better than others with this type of light? Thank you!!! Reply Greg Alder on February 21, 2021 at 3:26 pm Hi Rayna, Thank you! I wouldn’t think that spot would be better for certain varieties unless you’re in a location that gets cold enough in the winter such that the wall will put the tree in shade while young and potentially damage it from cold. You might consider a taller variety that will reach up for more sunlight, if that sounds applicable. If so, let me know and I can suggest varieties.
