Avocado – Shepard Grafted
Persea americana “Shepard”
Shepard is a ‘B’ type avocado, which means it needs to be paired with an ‘A’ variety for good fruit set. Fruit is pear shaped, small to medium in size, with thick, easy to peel skin. Nice flavour and high oil content. Does not brown when cut.
Plant in a sunny but protected position in well-drained enriched soil.
