The remarkable Lila Avocado tree is unique because the tree is a semi dwarf variety that produces excellent fruit. The Lila Avocado Tree will reach a mature size of about ten feet tall, and can be kept even smaller by pruning. Some older trees can reach larger sizes, but the Lila Avocado is quite small for an avocado tree. This makes it a good choice for anyone living in colder areas who want a container-grown avocado.
Mature Lila Avocado Trees can be cold hardy down to 15 degrees F. As such, Lila Avocados can be grown in the ground in USDA Zones 8 to 11. Fruit of the Lila Avocados is green, shiny, and has a rich, nutty flavor that is considered of high quality.
