The Avocado (Persea americana) is actually a large berry with a single seed, even though it has very little resemblance to a typical berry in both taste and appearance.

History

The Hass avocado tree has a compelling history. What is now the most popular avocado in the world was created by mistake but took off like wildfire.
Before Hass avocados hit the scene, the Fuerte avocado—a milder version descended from earlier cultivars in Mexico and Central America—was the most popular. By the 1900s, Fuertes had spread to the US.
Postman and budding horticulturist Rudolph Hass thought he had purchased Fuerte avocado seedlings in the 1920s. After planting them, the tree didn’t fruit for a long time. When it finally did, Hass discovered a bumpy, thick-skinned, rough-textured fruit unlike what he’d expected. Despite his urge to chop the tree down, his children convinced him to keep it—fans of the nutty, creamy fruit. In 1935, Hass patented the Hass avocado. Every one since is a descendant of that very tree, which died in 2002.

Climate condition


Avocados are cultivated in tropical and Mediterranean climates throughout the world. Avocados have a green-skinned body shaped much like a pear, egg, or sphere. The creamy flesh of the Avocado is yellow with a green outer lining. Avocados ripens after harvesting.

Planting


The best time to plant your Hass avocado tree is when the soil has warmed, preferably between March and June. Choose a wind-sheltered area with excellent drainage and full sun.
Remove any turfgrass, weeds, or debris within a 10-foot diameter of where you dig your hole. Dig a hole about three times the diameter of the seedling’s container and 3-4 times as deep. It’s important that you don’t plant your tree too deep, as avocado trees have shallow roots.
Take the seedling out of its container and place it gently into the hole. You want the root ball to be slightly above the level of the surrounding soil. Backfill the hole and tamp down the soil gently. Adding fertilizer or compost is not advisable, because you want your tree to acclimate to the soil as soon as it can.
You’ll need to water your newly planted Hass avocado tree every other day or every three days for the first week or so, and then twice weekly for the next few months.
