About the Bacon Avocado Tree

The Bacon Avocado tree, scientifically known as Persea americana ‘Bacon’, is a captivating and distinctive cultivar within the avocado family. Renowned for its rich, buttery flavor and smooth texture, the Bacon is a Mexican type of avocado like Haas. The Fruit is slightly larger however with a dark green almost black skin. Bacon Avocados have a creamy, buttery flesh with a mild flavor that is perfect for salads, slices, or spreading on toast.

The Bacon Avocado tree is celebrated not only for its delectable fruit but also for its relatively small and manageable size, making it a popular choice for home gardeners and orchard enthusiasts alike. Its adaptability to various climates and relatively fast growth further contribute to its appeal, making it a beloved addition to orchards and landscapes.

How to Grow the Bacon Avocado Tree

Avocado trees thrive in warmer tropical and subtropical climates. Bacon is a popular variety in areas with lower winter temperatures, tolerating temperatures down to 20 F.

When planting, select a well-draining, nutrient-rich soil and provide ample sunlight for optimal growth. Regular watering, especially during the establishment phase, is essential, but avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.

To nurture your avocado tree, prune for size, fertilize occasionally, and shield from frost in colder climates. They can also be grown in containers, opening the hardiness range for anyone to enjoy homegrown avocados!

Avocado trees are self-pollinating, meaning they don’t require another variety in order to produce fruit. However, having a Type A and Type B avocado tree more than doubles the chance of successful pollination and fruit set. Bacon is a Type B.
