Persea americana 'Don Gillogly' (Avocado)

Enjoy luscious tropical fruit year-round in your living room from this vigorous, evergreen dwarf! Fast-growing and pest-free, this Mexican native produces two crops a year of soft, black-skinned avocados with a flavor so rich you need nothing else for a scrumptious guacamole! Self-pollination follows the winter blooms, and the fruit ripens year-round (though the first crop may take up to 14 months). In mild climates it's also an excellent patio specimen, but bring it indoors beside a sunny window before frost. Capable of reaching 10 feet tall, but simple to keep pinched back to desired height and width, the Gillogly Avocado is both attractive and productive. Comes with easy growing instructions. Shipped in plastic sleeve 3-inch square by 9-inch deep.

I finally threw caution to the wind and purchased this dwarf avocado. Based on on-line reviews, it sounded like a very difficult plant to care for. It arrived in 2 days, not a leaf damaged. Per instructions from the internet I planted it in a 14" pot, all catus potting soil (I made 8 - 10 extra drainage holes around the bottom of the pot). Drainage is very important and water thoroughly - only once every 10-14 days. I've had it for 2 - 1/2 weeks and it's growing like crazy. 3 new shoots with multiple laterals on each. Good job Home Depot. It's on the patio here in S. Florida and doing very well.
