Unlike most oily commercial varieties, the Popenoe avocado is lighter, enormous, has a shiny green skin and grows well in humid sub-tropical and tropical areas. The football shaped Popenoe is described as firmer, creamier and juicier than the Haas avocado.
The Popenoe avocado was imported from Tela, Honduras on February 25, 1929 by Wilson Popenoe and from the Lancetilla Botanical Garden and Research Center by H. F. Winters on December 19, 1966 to Miami, Florida. No one has done more to popularize the avocado in the United States than Wilson Popenoe. As a young man, Popenoe traveled the Americas importing a broad diversity of tropical fruits into the United States and aiding in agricultural development throughout Central America. Wilson Popenoe imported several of his “favorite” avocados to Florida within his long career.
We have a select group of these grafted trees available for sale. Which are over 12"+ with good root development. No fruit is being sold just one grafted tree in each order which produces this fruit. Thank you!
It was very good, I received it in a good condition. It was about two to three feet, very healthy

Rafael replies promptly to questions. He is very easy to do business with. I look forward to seeing what he has to offer in the future. Tree appears very healthy. I also bought a giant mango which is struggling a bit with its new environment and a Passion fruit vine.
