Fruit: The fruit of the avocado tree is the avocado itself, which is a large berry with green or blackish skin and a creamy, pale green flesh.
Light: Avocado trees need full sun exposure, which means they should receive at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight daily.
Watering: Avocado trees require regular watering, especially during dry periods. Provide deep, thorough watering to keep the soil consistently moist. However, they are sensitive to overwatering, so ensure that the soil drains well.
Height: Avocado trees vary in size, but they typically grow to be 9 to 20 meters tall with a spread of 6 to 12 meters. They have a relatively symmetrical, rounded canopy.
Temperature: Avocado trees thrive in tropical and subtropical climates. They are not frost-tolerant and require warm temperatures to grow and produce fruit. The ideal temperature range for avocado cultivation is between 15°C to 30°C.
