Hall Avocados are similar to Choquette, but with drier flesh, a nuttier taste, and a higher flesh-to-seed ratio. Hall Avocado Trees bloom in spring and the fruit is ready in October and November. The pear-shaped Hall Avocados are dark green and have pale yellow flesh. Hall Avocados are 1 to 2 pounds when ripe, are easy to peel, and are considered very good eating quality. Hall Avocado Trees are easy to grow, resistant to many pests, and are cold hardy for an Avocado. They are good for Zones 9 to 11 in the ground, or in pots in Zones 4 to 11.
Hall Avocado Trees grow to about 30 feet tall and twenty feet wide. They like well drained, sandy loam soil and thrive in much the same conditions as citrus and mango trees. As such, they are popular companion plants for those who have established Grapefruits, Oranges, and Mangoes already growing on their property. Hall Avocado Trees produce slightly fewer fruits per harvest than the commercially popular Choquette, which can actually be an advantage for the home grower. A mature Hall Avocade Tree can still deliver a hundred pounds or more of Avocados each year.
