Joey is from Uvalde, Texas and was named for Joey Ricers.

 

It is a pure Mexican-type, and produces small, oval-shaped, shiny thin skinned fruit with a tiny seed. Reportedly the tree is high cold tolerant, with mature specimens surviving temperatures in the mid-teens.

 

The flesh is light green in color.

 

Though this avocado does produce well in Florida, the fruit has a very difficult time ripening properly here. In fact, it seems rare that we can get a Joey fruit to ripen evenly and may topwork the tree in the future.

 

It does have the distinction as being perhaps the earliest maturing avocado in Florida; we’ve harvested fruit as early as May on a number of occasions and even got April fruit once from a previous tree in Loxahatchee.
