I understand that
- In order for a Hass avocado to be so called, it needs to be grown from a cutting - specifically growing it from a seed will not result in a Hass avocado.
- Avocados grown from seed take many years longer to fruit then avocados grown from cuttings from mature trees.
- That having multiple Hass trees will not aid in cross pollination, Really an A and a B type are required for ideal pollination [ unless you have very variable weather like in NZ causing a period of overlap, where the tree can pollinate itself ]
If I'm right is anyone able to point me to authoritative source (preferably online) of this information, or, if not, can you set me straight? The specific reason I'm asking is that someone I believe to be a charlatan is advertising exhorbitant "non-hass" trees as Hass, and refusing to correct his advertisement and I would like to "force his hand" so that the naive people he is targetting are not bitten after tending a plant for 4 years...
