The parent Fuerte avocado. Three quarters of California avocado industry traces to Mexican tree



Jour Heredity 28(5): 181-182



A description of the parent Fuerte avocado tree that is located in the LeBlanc garden at Atlixco, Mexico. In 1911 buds from this tree were propagated by the West India Gardens at Pasadena, Cal. At present about f of the commercial avocado trees in California are of this var. and clonal progenies of the Atlixco tree. A summer bearing avocado tree in the same garden of some commercial promise for California is also described. Some of the advantages of a study of Mexican avocado seedling trees for new varieties for testing in the U. S. A. are mentioned.
