Fuerte Avocado Information and Care

Fuerte Avocado trees are subtropical plants with large leaves. They do well near the coast and in mild summer climates.  That large surface area allows their leaves to collect low sunlight from low light partial sun areas. Intense light and heat during the Summer can damage leaves and potential kill trees. To protect them plant where they receive morning sun and afternoon shade in hot climates. Avocado trees can be planted in the full sun in mild summer climates and near the ocean.

Fuerte avocados are a Mexican/Guatemalan cross that arrived to California from Puebla in the early 1900’s. ‘Fuerte’ means strong in Spanish, and got its name after withstanding a severe frost in California in 1913. They are tolerant to −3 °C (27 °F) temperatures.
