Little Cado Dwarf Avocado (Persea americana ‘Little Cado’)

Little Cado Dwarf Avocado

You’ll enjoy the creamy, nutty green flesh for all your healthy eating and cooking needs! The oval green fruits have waxy bumps and feature a mild flavor, ripening between May and September for fresh summer fruit! Self-fertile, you can increase pollination by planting multiple trees.

The unusual greenish blooms add interest and attract pollinators in the late winter and early spring. These evergreen fruit trees do great in USDA hardiness zones 9-11 and can not tolerate hard frost, so keep them in a container and bring them indoors during cold weather to protect them from the chills. Outdoors, the small stature makes it easy to cover your tree should there be the threat of frost.

Planting and Application:

Avocado trees are fantastic garden focal points or orchard additions! These are dual-purpose as a low privacy hedge or for screen porches and patios with an evergreen accent and shade. Plant a few anywhere sunny to enjoy your own homegrown healthy Avocados! You’ll enjoy having your own ‘minicado’ by your back door or anchoring your front yard landscaping!

Pot up in a container or planter so even Container gardeners, patio and balcony gardeners and small-space gardens can grow their own fruit! Northern gardeners can bring it indoors for winter in front of a full sun window, and use as a patio tree all summer!

Tips for Care:
