Here are a couple of pictures I've taken of the trees this year. The first two were taken in April, when the buds had been pollinated and the fruits were starting to grow. We knew that the majority of them would fall off, which they have.
The last three were taken two days ago. In less than two months, they've grown considerably. And you can see a lot fell off.
One of the nice things I found out doing research on the fruits ripening on the tree, is that they don't. They have to be taken from the tree to finish ripening. So, as long as they are on the tree, they'll be good! They should last us through next growing season. How cool is that?
Clicking on a picture will take you to a bigger photo in my family album; clicking on that picture will open a larger photo.
During the first three years, we only got about fifteen avocados between the two trees, this year is a bonanza. I did read that some avocado trees have a lot of fruit one year, then not so much the next year. I'll be kind of sad if both trees are loaded this year with nothing next year.
But we'll survive.
