Avocado Pears - Fruit or Veg?
We're in Mid-July here in the southern hemisphere. It's mid-winter and although it hasn't been the kind of winter one would experience in some regions of the northern hemisphere, we have experienced some "more than mild" spells i.e. it's been seriously bitter on some evenings, temperatures dropping to below zero.
I used to think that avocado pears were a summer crop, but looking at the enormous avocado pear laden trees in the beautiful garden of the wet-house I think I was horribly wrong in my previous assumption, or that because our winters are so mild, some days even hot, this crop can flourish throughout the year.
