Super Waldin Avocado Seedling 7516 Dry weight 15.45%
September 12, 2020: This is the second Super Waldin that caught my eye, actually about 3 weeks ago. This tree is one that I clearly remember cutting back the shoots coming out of the roots year after year. . It is actually building its own trunk just out of pure force. I will be posting pictures and details soon.
This particular fruit, looks very close to Waldin, produces very uniform large seeds, Seems to be running a bit later maturity wise.
A big plus, we really love the eating quality of the fruit. It can become one of our favorites this time of the year. Much better than the parent. Also the fruit is very clean, no disease showing, bright, shinny, smooth, and beautiful. I planted some of the seeds to observe and use as rootstock
September 13, 2020. I picked 8 fruit at random. The fruit sizes were. 20.6, 21.9, 18.6, 19.2, 20.9, 22.4, 22.7, 21.2 oz. Average weight 20.9 oz. At this time of the years packer should love this uniform fruit.
The seeds: relative uniform size and weight average size 60 mm, ranging from 56-65mm. Seed weight 3.7 -5.1 oz. average 4.5 oz. Very clean seed, all tight in the cavity none rooting indicating they could hang in the tree a bit longer.
Today I packed 5 seeds and placed in the refrigerator to see how they will sprout in 30 days. For micrografting you need small shoots.
September 17, 2020: today I opened 7 fruits to evaluate the seeds, they ranged from 4.0 oz. to 4.7 oz. averaging 4.4 oz. and size from 57 mm to 63 mm averaging 58.4 mm. Very consistent seed.
