About the Catalina Avocado Tree

This tree effortlessly blends beauty and utility, with its graceful branches and glossy green leaves that complement any landscape. With a moderate growth rate and a mature height of around 20-30 feet, this avocado tree strikes a harmonious balance between size and convenience, making it an excellent fit for both spacious gardens and cozy outdoor spaces.

Catalina Avocados boast a striking appearance with their large, pear-shaped avocados that weigh up to a pound each! The pebbled, textured skin encases creamy, pale-green flesh that’s rich in flavor and loaded with healthy oils. The Catalina avocado is native to Cuba and has been naturalized to Florida. The tree itself is distinguishable from other varieties because of its somewhat rounded, rather than elongated, leaves.

How to Grow the Catalina Avocado tree

This lovely, self-pollinating tree is easy to care for. Plant your avocado tree in a sunny spot in well-drained soil, ensuring good drainage to prevent waterlogging. Regular watering, especially during the initial stages, will help establish a strong root system. While these tropical, evergreen trees do not like to be exposed to frosts, they can be successfully grown as a patio plant when provided winter protection.

As your Catalina Avocado Tree matures, occasional pruning to shape its canopy and remove dead or crowded branches will promote healthy growth. While this tree is relatively low maintenance, providing a layer of mulch around the base helps retain moisture and keeps weeds at bay.

With its moderate growth rate and adaptability, the Catalina Avocado Tree is a delightful addition to your garden, offering not only aesthetic beauty but also the pleasure of homegrown avocados that you can savor and share with family and friends.

Avocado trees are self-pollinating and you’ll get a nice harvest with just one tree. They don’t require another variety in order to produce fruit. However, having a Type A and Type B avocado tree increases the chance of successful pollination and fruit set. Catalina is a type A.
