We finally got to plant this Mexicola avocado back in June. It is now middle of July and the tree looks pretty good and there are several new growths.
The only problem I’ve noticed is that something is eating the leaves. There are random holes here and there. I am guessing it’s either snails, slugs, or maybe caterpillars. So to stop the slugs I put crushed eggshells around the tree trunk. If that doesn’t stop them, then I may spray with neem oil.
Update July 27, 2014: Some of the new growth have what looks like tip burn. This could be due to the 100 plus days we’ve had these past few days. I am thinking of covering it up with a umbrella.
