"Skys the Limit - The "Avocado"? Little calabash I think......"
Nope. They were definitely avocados. The leaves and the tree of the calabash are completely different.
I have a few different avocado trees, including round ones and the elongated pear shape.
do they hang from the tree with a foot long stem? i have seen those trees at the botanical gardens and they were not called avacados
They are not calabash and yes, avocados can have foot long stems.
There are many, many diiferent varieties but you can believe what you choose.
Just don't eat them if you believe them to be calabash.
Alana is right. I was just guessing...This link shows a pic of the Reed Avocado.
