This is an avocado tree growing in my dad's yard. I saved the seed of an avocado way back in high school. I left it outside and miraculously, it grew roots and now is the lovely tree you see before you.
Fruits are starting to form. This avocado tree gives fruits at the end of August into September. Next time I'll have to time my visits to coincide. The fruit is large with a thin skin. The skin turns purple or black. The inside flesh is creamy and sweet.
My dad usually gets buckets and buckets of fruit from this tree. Enough to keep some and give lots away. Go avocados!!
