The Doni avocado tree, or the Persea Americana, is native to Mexico and Central America. But, now, they are grown widely in the United States, especially in Florida and California. In fact, the Doni avocado tree was the first quality avocado tree to hit the commercial market in Florida.
The Doni avocado tree can grow to be huge, with a height of 30 to 40 feet tall and a spread of 20 feet wide. 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. In spring, tiny yellow flowers begin to bloom, and the fruit is ready to harvest in May and June.
The Doni avocado 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.
Doni Avocado trees grow best in USDA hardiness zones 9 through 11. However, if planted in zones 4 through 8, they need to be taken indoors during the winter to protect them from the cold.
