ABSTRACT: An Avocado Tree Named "Gem"

Tech ID: 29646 / UC Case 1997-160-0


A distinct variety of Persea americana tree with a vigorous moderately-spreading upright growth habit is exhibited. The tree is less alternate bearing than the widely-grown ‘Hass’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The fruit is ellipsoid-shaped, lacks shoulders, is generally black-skinned, is well distributed around the tree, and commonly is larger than that of the ‘Hass’ variety. The leaves are displayed in a greater quantity than the ‘Hass’ variety and are similar in appearance to those of the ‘Hass’ variety. Moderate resistance to Persea mites is exhibited. The variety is suitable for the production of quality avocado crop under commercial growing conditions.
