Sir Prize Avocado

Persea americana 'Sir Prize'

This more prolific and cold-resistant grandchild of the popular Hass variety produces delicious, buttery avocados that mature up to two months earlier, from October to January. Dark green skin with lighter green stipules turns purplish-black as the fruit ripens after harvest. Self-fertile type-B flowers; planting a complementary variety such as Hass or Lamb Hass may increase fruit set and extend the harvest season. Tolerates mild frost when established.

Watering NeedsWater regularly - weekly, or more often in extreme heat or containers.

Provide unamended, well-drained soil, and a wind-sheltered site. Apply a thick layer of mulch to conserve moisture, avoiding the trunk. Water deeply and regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Periodic leaf drop is normal; allow to remain as mulch. Apply a slow-release fertilizer in spring after flowering.
