Are Spanish avocados and mangoes better than imported ones?

Don't forget that avocado is a fruit, so to affirm that it is better is a subjective variable, but we can affirm that they ripen longer on the tree, with which the flavours are more defined and the accumulation of fat and sugars is much greater than imported fruit for the simple reason that we are closer to the demanding markets (EU).

Avocado plant:

How to graft avocados and when is the best time or season to do it.

The avocado plant is the jewel in the crown of many gardens, but it is true that we have to wait between 10 and 15 years to harvest the first fruits unless it is grafted.

This way we can significantly reduce the amount of time needed to only 2-3 years and reduce the risk of getting an unwanted variety. Get ready to enjoy its high vitamin and healthy fat content.

What is grafting and why should I graft my avocado?

Grafting is a botanical solution to combine the genetic material of two plants into one. It is generally used to shorten waiting times for harvesting fruit or in order to benefit from a particular property that is characteristic of one of the two plants to be joined.

In our tropical orchard we generally use it to better adapt the rootstocks to our specific climate as we have long periods of drought and temperatures that are not native to various cultivars such as avocado.

The part of the plant to be grafted to obtain the improvement is called graft and the part that is rooted to the ground is called rootstock.

It is important to know that only plants that are of the same genus and family can be grafted.

The success rate will depend on the skill of the grafter and above all on the compatibility between the two varieties.

Avocado to buy: What is needed for grafting?

It is very important that the recipient tree is fully adapted to the local region and microclimate in order to be successful. Planting hass avocado is the most demanded solution, but it is not necessarily the optimal solution in your city.

The buds should be at least 10 centimetres long and should be selected from perfectly healthy trees that we know are not prone to disease and, if possible, have high yields.

The buds should have a few small ones in the axillary part (between the stem and the leaf) that are about to open. They should be about 1 cm wide and chosen from a strong branch that is no more than two years old and has become wood.

Avocado plant: Planting avocado seeds

It is important that it weighs more than 35 grams, looks healthy and above all that no more than 3 days have passed since you opened the avocado.

To graft an avocado, it is necessary to have sterilised material such as a special grafting knife, plastic grafting tape, and a grafting scissors.

Forget the typical grafting scissors, they miss more than a shotgun.

To obtain a higher success rate it is essential that the scions are properly preserved and if possible graft them the same day they are harvested.

How is grafting done?

There are several varieties of grafting but for grafting an avocado it is more interesting to graft a lateral veneer.

For those trees that you want to "cross" it is important to prune it on the branch that you want to do it or even at the base of the trunk.

The best time to graft avocados is in spring, as the plant has enough reserves accumulated over the winter to develop and the amount of nutrients is greater.

Grafting in spring also ensures that the plant has had a chance to develop sufficiently in the summer to withstand the winter. Remember that vegetative growth slows down and even stops in the winter season.

What is avocado grafting like?

First of all, cut the carrying branch about 3 centimetres off, making a small incision to attach the graft.

The scion is cut at an angle to make it coincide with the branch so that they are fused together.

The fusion will be bundled with an appropriate grafting tape making a slight pressure to match their vessels.

After one month it is necessary to remove the plastic as it could suffocate the branch and damage the growth.

Care for a grafted avocado tree

It is preferable that the grafted part does not get wet, as it could spread fungus and fail.

The plant should be well nourished and watered at the time of grafting.

If possible, less exposure to the sun can be beneficial for the success of the graft.
