Unlike most oily commercial varieties, the Popenoe avocado is lighter, enormous (up to a pound each), has a shiny green skin and grows well in humid sub-tropical and tropical areas. The football-shaped Popenoe is described as firmer, creamier and juicier than the Haas avocado. There are currently no commercial operations to grow the Popenoe. Clonal reproduction of this cultivar has been very limited and distribution by seed has historically been more common for non-commercial avocados in Florida and Honduras. Sustainable production of the Popenoe avocado will require clonal reproduction of the few existing trees.
We now have a 5-acre farm we are developing in Homestead, to grow more veggies for South Florida! We began as urban gardeners, aspiring to be urban homesteaders, in 2008. We still sell surplus garden produce as it becomes available, so you can eat fresh, just-picked local fruits and veggies, grown without poisons! (more...)
