Pancho Avocado Care

plant sunlight

Sunlight Plant your avocado in a spot that gets 6-8 hours of sun daily. If planting indoors, place your tree near a sunny window or under grow lights.

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.

Cold-Hardy Avocado Thrives in Low Temperatures

Introducing the Pancho Avocado, a cold-tolerant marvel bursting with flavor and a buttery-smooth texture! With a remarkable cold-hardiness down to 15 degrees, these avocados thrive even in chillier climates, ensuring a bountiful harvest.

Each fruit boasts a generous size of 6-8oz. and has a lime green exterior and creamy interior. Also called Poncho Avocados, Pancho Avocados deliver a spreadable consistency and buttery taste that effortlessly enhance your favorite dishes. 

Not just a delicious addition to your meals, this tree also serves as a stunning indoor plant. Simply place in a space that needs some color and watch it produce delicious avocados from mid-July to mid-September. What's more, Pancho Avocados are self-fertile - though pairing with another tree can enhance productivity for an even more abundant harvest.

Pollination Info

Pancho Avocado Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting:  Find a spot where your avocado can receive full sunlight (between 6 to 8 hours daily), and dig a hole for the root system. Place the tree in the hole, fill it with soil, and tamp it down lightly. Water thoroughly. For clay soil, plant on a slight mound with well-draining soil. Provide a support stake for the first year or two and mulch well. Find a sunny, frost-free, and wind-free location with southern exposure to plant in the ground. 

For containers, transfer your new tree to a container 1-2 inches larger than the pot it arrives in. Fill with well-draining soil to 3” below the rim. Loosen the root system and place the plant so the root ball is even with the soil surface. Water lightly until well rooted. In the second summer, plant in a larger container. Use a wide-diameter container, and refresh the soil every 1-3 years. Place near a sunny window or under fluorescent grow lights. Mist foliage regularly or use a humidifier if humidity is less than 40%.

2. Watering:  Good drainage is crucial for avocado trees. Young trees need watering 2-3 times per week in their first year. Mature trees need 2 inches of water per week in summer. 

When grown in a container, deep watering is preferred over frequent, light watering. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. 

Overwatering causes curling leaves and soft stems while underwatering causes wilted, dry foliage.

3. Pruning: Some light pruning can be beneficial for shaping, removing dead or damaged branches, and maintaining a manageable size.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilize your avocado tree with aged compost or worm castings when planting. Once established, use a well-balanced citrus fertilizer twice a year. Do not add fertilizer while backfilling. Instead, apply compost or worm castings to the soil surface after planting.

5. Pollination: Pollinators are not required; however, other avocado plants can boost the size of your crops. Plant one of these pollinators within 100’ for best results.
