The Zutano Avocado, which is primarily grown in California, is a medium-sized avocado, with a pear-like shape and thin, green, slightly pebbled skin. Zutano avocado trees are vigorous and relatively easy to grow, making them a popular choice for home gardeners and commercial growers. In fact, Zutano Avocado seeds are often used by commercial growers as the seeds germinate quickly and uniformly in the nursery while providing thick stems for tip-grafting. They are also known for their resistance to sunburn and tolerance to high temperatures, making them a good choice for warmer climates. While the Zutano Avocado is a popular variety in California, it is not as well-known or widely grown as other Avocado varieties such as the Hass Avocado. The Zutano avocado remains a popular choice for growers and consumers alike due to its unique flavor profile and early fruiting. They are often used in salads, sandwiches, and guacamole.
Even when they are not fruiting, Zutano Avocado trees are beautiful tropical trees. As with other tropical fruits, Zutano Avocado trees can be grown indoors, on balconies, patios, and limited-space gardens. Enjoy the attractive trees as ornamentals if you choose to plant your Zutano Avocado trees in an indoor container!
