Cold climate avocado trees

Zone 95945 | Anonymous added on March 12, 2019 | Answered

We live in Zone 9 in Northern California, but I am looking for an avocado tree that will also work in Zone 8, in case we have an unusually hard winter. My research suggests a Mexicola Grande. it is fall bearing. Is there an equally cold hardy avocado tree that bears in the spring that I can plant for pollinating help? I read that the Bacon would work, but it also bears in the fall. Any suggestions? Thank you. Jan Tache

They will all likely give fruit in the fall. Any pollinator will work, and you are correct. That variety will be one of your best bets. Mexican Avocados are usually a little more tolerant of cooler temperatures.
