Looking for old avocado varieties

Looking for old avocado varieties

I'm from Florida and looking for old avocado varieties.

Kilgore Special

Some of these are popular in the Philippines, but are no longer grown here. Any help would be appreciated.

old avocado varieties

Queen is around in the trade, have not heard about the others. How about Murietta Green, Puebla, and Nimlioh that have a great history?

I just picked up a Golden variety from Top Tropical. Might be ready to trade some wood in a year or so. Not sure of the history, but supposed to be cold hardy. Tree came from Wauchula, FL. Small town in Central Florida. I'm from this town and have never heard of it, so I'm a little skeptical. TT doesn't say if it is A or B. So we will see what happens.
