Avocado - ‘Brogdon’, Persea americana - Live Plant (Brogden)

Ships in a 3-gallon pot

Introducing the 'Brogdon' avocado, a unique and highly sought-after variety that offers both delicious fruit and exceptional hardiness. Developed in the 1930s by Mr. Tom W. Brogden in Winter Haven, FL, this mystery avocado is a complex hybrid cross of Mexican and Indian varieties.

With its ability to survive temperatures down to 22ºF, the 'Brogdon' avocado is the perfect choice for those living in regions where cold fronts are common. Its deep purple, pear-shaped fruit is as intense as eggplant's near-blackness, with a creamy yellow flesh that is rich in healthy oils. The 'Brogdon' avocado is particularly well-suited for guacamole, as it is a Mexican variety.

Not only does the 'Brogdon' avocado offer delicious fruit, but it is also a type-B self-fertile variety, meaning it will also serve as a good pollinator for nearby A-type avocado trees. This provides more opportunities for adequate pollination and timing, ensuring a bountiful harvest.

With its beautiful deep green foliage, the 'Brogdon' avocado is also a striking addition to any garden. Growing to an average mature height of 25 feet, it prefers full sun to light shade and well-draining soil. Hardiness zones 9b-11 are ideal for outdoor cultivation.

This avocado is a type-B self-fertile variety. They will also help to serve as a good pollinator for nearby A-type avocado trees.

Shipping Stress - Transport can cause stress to plants, especially if spending a few days in a dark stuffy box. Leaf drop may occur.  Most plants survive with no problems or with minimal stress and recover quickly others may require extra love and attention with watering and gentle light after unboxing.

Physical damage - Occasionally, boxes become damaged during UPS handling & transport. Our shipping team takes all measures in securely packing your selection/s to minimize all damage and stress on the plant.  We've had great feedback on packing your plants with extra special attention. Unfortunately, it's past our control beyond our packing house.  
In cases of serious box damage, please contact UPS within 30 days to start a claim.
If it's just a broken branch or even part of a stem - just let it grow, take care of your plant and it will respond to your love.

Shipping Long Distances -  Orders that are shipped to the western US can often take 4 to 6 business days for transport, including the delay of agricultural inspections in Arizona, California & Texas. Please note that the quality of tender young plants is more affected by the extra length of stress inside shipping boxes. Extra care is taken during packaging to ensure quick recovery after unboxing.  Often plants need extra care for the first few weeks after transport.  Please review our policy on returns & refunds for more information, as well as our plant care guide.
