The Doni Avocado is a superior quality fruit that is widely grown in Florida commercial groves for a number of reasons. One of the most appealing attributes of this variety is that the fruit is ready to harvest in May and June, and therefore crops can be picked before tropical storms or even hurricanes become common each season. The fruit is large, up to 2 pounds, and has a large quantity of flesh compared to seed material. Doni Avocado Trees grow to 30 feet tall and 20 feet wide when planted in the ground in their suggested Zones of 9 to 11.
Doni Avocado Trees are somewhat cold sensitve, and trees in Zones 4 to 8 (or where freezing is common) should be planted in pots and brought indoors over winter. This early variety has a very mild flavor and is prized for dips and salads where the fruit’s creamy texture blends well with other flavors. Plant a Doni Avocado Tree in your edible landscape and grow this tropical treasure that provides deep green foliage, shade, bird habitat, and delicious early Avocados.
