"Ground Control Calling"
“There’s a great deal of joy in growing and watering plants and producing a flower” Julie Robinson, the chief scientist for the International Space Station.
Growing plants is good for all of us but think about it. The confines of the space station can be daunting. The "loneliness" and the impossibility of taking a walk around the neighbouhood to break the monotony, and the cold facts of living in a ... well, essentially a large tin can. On Planet Earth we enjoy the pelting of the rain, the soothing sound of the breeze, or even the howl of the wind. It changes the humdrum and jolts us back into Life. What is life, after all? When we engage with a plant; it is like an ecstatic and harmonious dance of heavenly nature. There's a "give"and "take" in all dances. Don't you agree? But these guys inside the tin can are deprived of most of this boon. Now, even astonauts are encouraged to grow plants, for very important reasons. Yes, they grow plants for boosting their emotional wellbeing, as well as eating ... Fresh.
Before going any further, some might wonder why avopro is telling stories instead of selling avocado trees. Just for the records: A new study shows our ancestors loved telling stories from at least 44000 years ago. Is it any wonder why people love hearing and telling stories? Don't you agree? In any case this site for sure is; a story about you growing your own mini avocado trees.

There are many myths about avocado growing and like other false info they have a weird ability to persist. The five most repeated rumors are:
- Avocado trees from a seed or stone, are just as good as the grafted ones, only cheaper.
- Avocados take 5, 7, 10 or even more years, to fruit.
- Avocados must become huge trees, before they produce.
- You can only grow avocados in warmer places, not here!
- If you are lucky enough to be in the right area, a single avocado tree is all you need.
All above statements are false and old tales. While self seeded avocados can take ten, twenty or more years and become huge trees before they fruit, special grafted ones can fruit within few years. These guys - AvoPro - produce trees which fruit in the first year. Another point about self-seeded or seedling avocados is; we don't know if and when they fruit, whether its avocado is desirable or not. More often, it's not. Some reseachers say 1 in 400,000 new varieties might have reasonable qualities! However, mini avocado people, get excellent avocados within just one year and more importantly; they produce known, tried and tested avocado varieties, only.
Many people are growing avocados in the sub-tropical and the cooler regions. The retired professor John Walker has been researching privately on growing avocados in the Port Hills of Christchurch and has had great success. He has written a documented article on the subject and has given AvoPro permission to distribute it to all interested in avocado growing in the cooler regions. If you like a pdf copy of it, just go to the contact page and email mini avocado: AvoPro
Also, it is proven beyond all doubt that planting different avocado varieties close-together helps better, larger, higher quality, and more consistent, year after year fruit-set. Note that many 'auhorities' keep insisting "people do not need to plant the A and B types together, to get fruit". This is true only if; All environmental conditions for successful pollination and fruit-set, are in place at every location and at all times during the flowering period! They must be kidding. Who dosn't know this is almost impossible? Remember: Close-Pollination may or may not help avocados to set fruit. However, Cross-Pollination increases the fertilization chances by many folds. Sorry for all the jargon, sometimes it's necessary. AvoPro people get many reports of mature, very big Hass trees, which produce huge numbers of flowers but fail to set fruit or the fruitlets abort, after a while. When in such cases it was recommended to plant the Type B cultivars near their existing trees, they got results within just couple of years.
In A Nutshell: Go right ahead and plant different A and B avocado types, close-together. Do this.

These Large Trees are grown for a further 18-24 months than the standard ones. They are also in 3 to 5 times bigger containers than normal. We can produce only a few, each year. They are for the avocado connoisseurs who crave to be ahead by couple of years, or more. Often these large avocado trees are over 2 - 2.5 m high as compared with the 1 m high standard trees, and have flowers or even fruit on them. They are naturally priced higher, because of the extra time and costs involved.
