The Brogdon, Avocado tree variety is cold hardy to 27 degrees and is a really great producer! Brogdon Avocado fruit has deep purple skin and a creamy pulp with a rich nutty flavor that's high in oil content, much like the beloved California Hass variety. Hass doesn't produce fruit here in the southeast so we always recommend Brogdon as the perfect substitute.

The Brogdon Avocado actually originated in Sow Exotic's hometown - Winter Haven, Florida - in the 1930's.  It gained its glory as a cold hardy fruit tree when it was reported to have survived a North Carolina winter in the 1950's.

    Avocados in Seattle!!!

    A tale of my mighty Brogdon Avocado tree. It arrived last fall, just before a Seattle winter. Before I had a chance to transplant it into a pot, my lovely dog knocked it over and stripped off all but 4 of its luscious leaves. It was like a crime scene. I went ahead and planted it into a pot but figured it had no chance. It sat through the winter outside. One by one, each leaf yellowed and curled, until there was a single one left. Then...spring and summer arrived, the tree exploded with life, beautiful leaves emerging, stems growing, I am amazed. I bought my little tree a second Brogdon friend, they're incredibly happy together, thriving. The fall has arrived. I'll soon face the decision...to leave outside or bring inside. Let's see how these two little fellas survive in Seattle. Any bets?
