Donnie Avocado Tree (Persea americana ‘Donnie’)

Donnie Avocado Tree

Delightful healthy fruit and exotic shade, the Donnie Avocado Tree (Persea americana ‘Doni’) will provide you and your landscape with so many benefits! You’ll adore the flavor and convenience of having homegrown fruit right outside your door!

Unique spring blooms of this early producing tree call pollinators galore to flutter among the dark green, evergreen leaves! You’ll enjoy the dense shade these branches provide and their steady green presence within your landscape! If you are lucky enough to live in a very temperate growing zone that won’t have any worry of frost or chill, then Donnie is a great tree for you!

The slimmer fruit is dark green with a light green flesh with a mild flavor that’s not overpowering. Ideal for adding to all your favorite recipes, both fresh or cooked! Swap out mayonnaise and dressings by blending this creamy savory fruit instead. Ripening very early in the season, these are self-fertile, but for much larger crops, plant this type ‘A’ Avocado with type ‘B’ trees to extend your harvest for a steady supply of fruit all year!

Planting and Application:

The lush foliage appears on dense multi-stemmed branching that is ideal for screening, privacy and shelterbelts for birds and wildlife! Create a beautiful windbreak for your garden or yard and reduce noise and wind with a row of avocados planted along your property! A single specimen will look fantastic as a front yard evergreen accent tree when pruned to a single stem or limbed up to show off the great branching.

Donnie Avocados can be kept pruned smaller yet and grown planters or containers for indoor or outdoor décor! Porches, patios and that sunny window all look great with one of these broadleaf evergreens adding life and color!
