About the Lula Avocado Tree

The Lula Avocado stands as an exceptional cultivar, yielding medium-sized fruits ranging from 8 to 18 ounces each. These pear-shaped delights have glossy green skin, and rich, creamy flesh. Praised for their exquisite flavor profile, Lula Avocados are considered of fine quality, with a nutty taste similar to Hass Avocado, yet smoother. The medium-sized fruits are great for fresh eating and are smooth with a high enough oil content to make creamy guacamole!

This remarkable variety, believed to be a fusion of Mexican and Guatemalan Avocados, traces its roots to Florida, where it achieved widespread recognition and cultivation during the early 1900s. Popular for excellent flavor, prolonged harvest window and exceptional tolerance to cold temperatures.

How to Grow the Lula Avocado Tree

Avocado trees are dense, evergreen trees that grow fast in tropical climates. These evergreen trees are remarkable in their ability to thrive under a broad range of environmental conditions. Lula is renowned for its ability to endure harsh winters and can even be grown in containers in warmer climates. Avocado trees typically prefer mild temperatures, good draining soil, humidity, and 6 hours of sun.

When planted in the ground, the Lula Avocado Tree can reach a mature size of about 25-30 feet tall and can be kept even smaller by pruning. When growing in a container, make sure the soil completely dries out before watering again deeply. These trees have shallow roots, so be sure to choose a container that is just as wide as it is tall. Good drainage is key.

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. Lula is a type A.
