ready-to-plant in

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.
