We are best known or our Sir Prize avocado variety.  A variety rarely grown because of its temperamental nature.

  1. Hello. My name is Kyle and I’m the operations manager here at golden gate palms in point Richmond CA. , next to the s.f. Bay. Outside of palms and tropicals we also sell lots of avacados. One of the many varieties we sell is sir prize. Your saying it’s fussy. I’m inclined to agree w you being in this season alone I’ve had around 5 or so customers ripping out their 12-15′ sir prize(not purchased from us) and replacing it w another b variety because it barely produces a crop where as the Hass right next to it is loaded. This has happened in varied areas. From the immediate Bay area where it’s cooler to inland around mt diablo where it’s much warmer. What’s the trick here to getting this cado’ to be a consistent producer? I want our customers to enjoy their investment, not nurture a lemon. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any of your time pertaining to this. Thanks. Kyle.


    • I would say normally that there needs to be an A type near by for some pollination, but if they have a Hass that shouldn’t be a problem. So I’m not sure what could be the issue, other than they are quirky. Boo!
