Avocados, sometimes called alligator pears because of their appearance, have many health benefits. Their oils contain good fats that help humans absorb nutrients and they contain many vitamins necessary for good health. They also taste good, being popular in Latino recipes, especially things like guacamole. Many also like to add them to salads and some types of sushi are topped with avocados.
Avocados need proper feeding to grow and develop a pleasant taste. Fortunately, avocados are not heavy feeders so growers neednít spend too much on fertilizer. However, they do benefit from good feedings at certain times of the year.
Things You'll Need
Organic nitrogen fertilizer
Find your treeís drip line. Look up at the branches and note which one stretches out the longest. This marks the edge of your drip line, the furthest edge where water can drip to the ground from the branches. Many root ends rest under the drip line.
Spread nitrogen fertilizer in a 6-inch wide, 1-inch thick band around your tree in line with the drip line. This ensures that water dripping from the branches will help carry nutrients into the soil. It also ensures that the nutrients get to the most root endings.
Apply organic nitrogen fertilizer for avocado trees every three months during the growing season and twice during dormancy. This feeds the roots and helps support new growth in the spring.
