Avocado – Reed Grafted (A)
Persea americana “Reed”
Reed is an ‘A’ type avocado, which means it needs to be paired with an ‘B’ variety for good fruit set. Fruit is very large in size, rounder, with thick, slightly pebbled, easy to peel skin. Pale yellow flesh has a rich, nutty flavour. A green-skinned variety, meaning the skin remains green when ripe.
Plant in a sunny but protected position in very well-drained, enriched soil.
