IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Spring Grafted Trees should be ready the following Fall. Deadline is May 01

Late Summer & Fall Grafted Trees should be ready the following Spring. Deadline is October 01

 

A Pre-Order Grafting Request is an order for us to produce the specific tree that we don't currently have available in stock. We must graft the tree and then it must go through a multi-month process to heal and grow. Only Once the small tree has completed two flushes of growth since it was grafted do we consider it ready to leave our nursery.

Bacon was a seedling planted in 1928 by James. E. Bacon of Buena Park, California.

 

It is thought to be a hybrid between Guatemalan and Mexican types, producing a small, light green oval fruit with very light colored flesh.

 

It has good oil content with a mild flavor.

 

The tree was recognized as having good cold tolerance and commercial traits and received some commercial plantings in California over the decades.

 

Here in south Florida we have found that Bacon is one of the California avocados that performs reasonably well in our soil and climate.

 

At one point we had two large Bacon trees growing in Loxahatchee which consistently bore good crops. Bacon?s greatest fault is that it can suffer uneven-ripening issues (particularly earlier fruits). It normally ripens from September through October here and is a B-type flower.
