JOEY AVOCADO - This glossy, fragrant variety is beloved for its deep, near-black hue when ripened - similar to the Hass! It thrives in cooler climates and can stay strong on the tree for extended periods.

Proudly grown in Louisiana.

CONTAINER SIZE - 3 gallon 

POLLINIZATION - Avocadoes produce perfect flowers but the male and female portion of the flowers function at different times of the day. For this reason, growers have categorized avocados in two categories, Type A and Type B, depending on the time of day reproductive functions are present. For best fruit production, plant a Type A and Type B avocado tree.


SPACE REQUIREMENT - 20 to 30 feet from all structures and other trees

ZONES - 8B - 11B

POTENTIAL YIELD - 110 to 165 pounds


  • Choose a location with the highest elevation possible that will provide your tree with good surface and internal drainage, and provide the most available sunlight. The ideal location will also be away from buildings and structures. 
  • Prepare a hole twice the width and the same depth of the container your tree arrives in. Do not dig your hole too deep as this may cause your newly planted tree to settle deeper in the soil and die. Fill the hole with water and allow all water to be fully absorbed into the earth before transplanting. If it takes 48 hours or more for the water to be fully absorbed into the earth, consider an alternative location, creating a raised bed or container planting.
  • Remove your tree from the container. If a tap root has developed and is growing in a circle, cut the root at the point that it begins to coil. It will grow a new tap root. Separate and trim root-bound roots. Place the tree in the hole at the same depth that it was planted, making sure the top of the root ball is even with the ground level. Backfill the hole with soil to the ground level and lightly tamp soil around the tree.
  • Using excess soil, create a water levee around the perimeter of the hole. Doing so will ensure better irrigation to your newly planted tree. 
  •  Keep wet the first week than water one to two times weekly for the first few months. Water newly planted trees twice a week during dry periods. Once trees are 4 years old, irrigate to increase growth a crop yield. 

FERTILIZATION -  Fertilize young trees every two months during the first year with 1/4 pound of 8-8-8 or 13-13-13 fertilizer and slowly increased to 1 pound. Thereafter, three applications per year in an amount proportionate to tree size, not exceeding 20 pounds per tree. It is acceptable to add one pound of fertlizer per year of growth. 

PRUNING AND TRAINING - Produces fruit on second year growth so pruning to maintain an open center is beneficial.  Light pruning can be performed at any time, however, major pruning should be performed during the dormant period before buds break. 

COLD PROTECTION - Protect from freeze.
