Winter Mexican

IMPORTANT READ BEFORE Make your Grafting Request Order

Deadline for Spring 2023 Orders is September 30th/2022.

 

A 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.

 

Orders will be grafted later this year, and should be ready in the Spring or Summer /2023.

 

All the requests made after September 30th 2022 will be grafted this late spring, and it wouldn’t be ready until Fall, maybe October or November 2023

This is from the West Palm Beach, FL area and was introduced in 1922.

 

Its parentage is unreported but it is probably a Mexican-Guatemalan hybrid.

 

It was later trialed in other parts of Florida and found to be fairly cold hardy (down to the low 20sF).

Though it was reported to be a very vigorous variety, this has not been our experience with it and the tree has grown rather slowly.

It produces small-to-medium sized, green pyriform shaped fruit with pale colored flesh and somewhat mild flavor.

 

As the name suggests, Winter Mexican is a late-season avocado here maturing its fruit from December through January.

It produces B-type flowers.

 

Race: Mexican-Guatemalan hybrid

Flower type: B

Country: Florida - USA
