Hello Friends,

I am looking for the Hawaiian Avocado variety "Kahaluu". Does anyone have this variety? Has anyone ever tasted this variety? If anyone does in fact have this Avocado variety, would you be willing to share Budwood?

or,

Does anyone know where I can buy a tree of this Variety?

Thanks,

Jacob

You might want to contact Lynn at Frankie's Nursery in Hawaii. I know they sell wood and cuttings and they mail it over here.
