From new leaves to blooms

The SlimCado’s autumn

You might not recognize our tropical avocado’s “autumn,” but our trees do have their own autumn. Sometime in winter or spring (depending upon the variety), the tree will drop most of its leaves and grow back red leaves that turn dark green. As the leaves turn green, the tree flowers.

The flowers aren’t “rose” like pretty, but to avocado farmers they’re beautiful.

Every little flower is a potential avocado. Fingers crossed we don’t get a heavy wind, wrecking our chances of an avocado growing there.
