Watch in amazement as these 2 trees cross pollinate for delicious and abundant produce! This is truly a match made in heaven – hurry to order and reap the benefits in your Yarden today!  Planting a Type A Avocado near a Type B Avocado increases your chances of pollination and fruit production.

The Monroe Avocado (Type B) is one of the most popular commercial varieties grown in both Florida and South America. The large fruits are high eating quality and the trees grow abundant crops. Monroe Avocados have slightly bumpy, deep green, shiny skin and the flesh is smooth, fiberless, and has a nutty mellow taste.

The Doni Avocado (Type A) has a smooth texture, mild taste, almost to the point of being bland, and a large seed in the middle. A few of the main nutrients in the Doni Avocado are vitamin C, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, fiber, and healthy fats. The trees produce avocado fruit that hang far off of the branches. The avocados have a pear shape, and they are about medium to large in size.

This product includes 1 5L Monroe Avocado Tree at full price and 1 5L Doni Avocado Tree 50% OFF

Want to learn more about Avocado pollination?

Avocado flowers transition between male and female depending on the time of the day. If your avocado variety is a Type A, the flowers are female in the morning and male in the afternoon. Type B Flowers are male in the morning and female in the afternoon. So let’s say a pollinator, like a bee, is buzzing around in the morning and visits your Monroe Avocado (Type B) and gets pollen on it. Without a Type A flower nearby, like a Doni, you’d have to hope the bee comes back in the afternoon to pollinate your, now female, Monroe flowers. There’s a much better chance that your bee buddy will stop by your female Doni flowers while it’s buzzing around your male monroe flowers.

It’s just the opposite in the afternoon. If a be visits your male Doni flowers, it’s likely it will visit your female Monroe flowers while it’s in the area, increasing your chances of pollination of your Monroe avocado.

Monroe Avocado Tree Care

If you are in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 9 to 11, the best way to grow your own Monroe Avocados is to plant a Monroe Tree in the ground. Pick a spot that has soil that drains well and that gets about 6 hours of sun or more each day. Give the tree about 12 feet of room on each side, and water once per week for the first 2 months. When new growth appears, reduce watering to when the soil under the tree is dry to 2 inches deep.

You can also grow a Monroe Avocado Tree in a pot. Use a 7-gallon or larger pot with drainage holes and rich potting soil with added sand and perlite for drainage. Plant the Monroe Avocado Tree so that the rotball top, and potted soil surface, is about 2-inches below the pot’s rim. This will provide space at the top of the pot for watering. Flood this space well and allow the pot to drain fully when watering. Position the potted Monroe Avocado Tree in full sun, and bring indoors if freezing weather is expected.

Doni Avocado Tree Care

Doni avocado trees need to receive full sunlight, or at least 6 to 8 hours per day. They can tolerate light shade, but the more sun, the better. After a few years of growth, they need to be given 10 feet of space from buildings and 30 feet of space from other trees.

To prune a Doni avocado tree, cut branches that hang low to the ground and interfere with the tree access. Light can be pushed into the tree’s interior by cutting “windows” into the canopy. You should shorten branches to about 2 to 4 feet, and you can prune it during any time of the year.

To propagate the Doni avocado plant, you can plant seeds, root avocado cuttings, or use grafting. Using cuttings is the most effective method, and you can do this in early spring. Select a new shoot with closed leaves, and take a cutting that is 5 to 6 inches long. Use peat moss and soil in a small pot, and put the cutting about ⅓ deep. Then, cover the pot with a plastic bag and keep it indoors.


Avocado trees can be grown from seeds, but the resulting trees may produce fruit that is vastly different from the fruit grown by the parent tree. This is due to the complex process of cross pollination and plant genetics. If you are growing an Avocado seedling for fun, and you have the gardening room and time, growing a tree from seed can be a rewarding project. It is possible that the fruits your tree grows will be delicious, but they may also be filled with root fibers, or have very large seeds and very little flesh.

If you want to grow an Avocado Tree that you are sure will produce a reliable, high-quality fruit, then the best option is to buy a grafted Avocado Tree from a reputable nursery. Avocado Trees thrive in similar soils and locations as citrus and mango trees. As such, Avocado Trees make great companions for orange, grapefruit, or tangerine citrus trees, as well as mango trees like Haden and Valencia Pride.
