Catalina Avocado Care

View Full Planting & Care Instructions angle down icon
plant sunlight

Sunlight Although partial sun will suffice, to produce avocados in abundance, make sure you choose a planting area that gives your Hass Avocado Tree full sun (at least six hours of morning to early afternoon sunlight each day).

plant watering

Watering A thorough watering once weekly is generally all your avocado needs, however. While the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, avocado leaves love humidity. Indoor Avocados will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running heat during cooler months.

plant fertilizing

Fertilizing Feed in the spring, summer, fall and winter, after the tree has been planted for one year, using a well-balanced fertilizer.


Fast-Growing Avocados Within the First Two Years

Renowned as the most popular avocado in the market, the Catalina Avocado tree is a wonderful way to enjoy homegrown produce and elevate your landscape. Harvest tasty avocados from July to November and enjoy beautiful dense green foliage year-round.

Pollination Info

Catalina Avocado Pollination

Catalina Avocados are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Catalina Avocado will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Find an area preferably in full sun and with well-draining soil. Dig a hole twice the size of your Catalina Avocado's root ball. Backfill the hole with soil and lightly tamp down. Water to establish.

2. Watering: Water at least once a week or more within the first two years—especially in hotter climates. If you’re unsure of when to water, put your finger in about 2 inches of the soil. If it’s dry, give it water.

3. Pruning: Be sure to remove any dead leaves or branches in the winter and before Spring.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize the Catalina Avocado tree in the spring, summer, fall and winter, after the tree has been planted for one year using an organic fertilizer.

5. Pollination: The Catalina Avacado is self-pollinating so you can enjoy plenty of avocados with only one tree. However, planting multiple avocados will increase your harvests.
