Tower2

'Wilson' was named for horticulturalist and avocado specialist Wilson Popenoe who introduced this variety and many others to Florida. It is an old variety that has faded into obscurity despite being a fantastic flavored fruit. Mediocre production, large fruit size, and a bizarre shape make this variety unpopular with commercial producers. Contrarily they are great for dooryard growers, because they are a great quality fruit and production is more than adequate with yields of 100-200 lbs. per season.
