Avocado Flowers
by brian @ 11:40:43 - [perma-link]

One of my avocado plants is flowering again! This is the second time. The first time was in 2018, with just a couple of bunches of flowers that were mostly in sync. This time, there are two big sets of clusters, and the flowers are not in sync!
Avocado flowers open twice. The first opening is the female form. They then close, make some changes, and reopen as male flowers with pollen.
These first few are the female form. If they close and reopen male while some of the other flowers open as female, the plant can pollinate itself (with help from a small paintbrush) and produce fruit!
