I live in St.Croix and want to plant into the ground a grafted avocado tree that is 2'ft (60 cm) high. I live close to the ocean. I see lots of mango trees in the neighborhood, but few if any avocado trees.

  1. How to I check to see if the soil is good for this type of tree?
  2. What do I need to amend the soil if necessary? Thank you
  • Some more info you might add (would be helpful): what variety of avocado tree do you have: Guatemalan, West Indian, Mexican or maybe a mix (ie Guatemalan grafted to a Mexican)? In general, they are hardy tree's that can grow in a variety of soil types but they need good drainage. – Rob Aug 13 '18 at 20:43
