Avocados grow really well in Asturias but there are not many trees around. Those that grow locally are mainly ornamental and rarely do people collect the fruit. There is a mature specimen in the Village - approx 10 meters high. Huge fruit. We have a new avocado tree growing from a stone. About 1 meter high. These are not our fruit - maybe another 10 years for that.


  1. Wow - I'd love to be able to grow an avocado tree. It's a bit too cold here in Manchester though.

  2. It'll be great if we do manage to get fruit from ours.
