Winter Avocado harvest in Melbourne. I’ve been

Winter Avocado harvest in Melbourne. I've been growing these delicious fruits for more than 10 years but this is the best crop I've had. For tips on how to grow these fruits in cold climates, see my YouTube video at Karen Sutherland. We picked 40 fruits and left a dozen on the tree encased in individual wire mesh 'bags' as this is the only thing that will deter Rattus rattus. So many of the fruits were too high to protect so we picked them rather than leave then to be eaten by rodents. As Avocados ripen off the tree after being picked, we stored most of them in the fridge to be ripened later at room temperature and packed some to make the long trip with us to share with family in Switzerland
