Avocado sapling aka Persea americana that I planted 3 months ago
It had been dry for much of Febuary. The plants that I planted downstairs have dropped their leaves in response to the drought conditions. I was seriously thinking of watering them. March proved to be a wet month not because of global warming but La Nina weather conditions.
The Avocado tree is originally from Mexico like the Papaya plant.I will have to wait between 5 to 13 years before I can taste the fruits of my labour.I doubt this Avocado sapling will be viable unless I water it three times a week.Found that out visiting the website of the California Avocado commission www.avocado.org
