The most recommended soils are light textured, deep, well drained and with a neutral or slightly acidic pH (5.5 to 7), but it can be grown in clayey or clayey loam soils as long as there is good drainage, as excess moisture provides a suitable environment for the development of root diseases, physiological as root asphyxia and fungal as Phytophthora.

Large, upright trees used as windbreaks up to 30 meters high in its native environment, originating from a wide geographic area, which extends from Mexico and Guatemala to the Pacific coast of Central America.

It is a tree with wide climatic adaptation as long as it is free from frost. Temperatures above 36ºC cause damage, being more accentuated if they are accompanied by low relative humidity in the environment. The soils preferred by the avocado tree are loam to sandy loam with good internal drainage; This species is very sensitive to waterlogging, which causes root asphyxia and subsequent development of the fungus Phytophthora cinnamomi Rand , which causes the death of its roots. It does not tolerate periods of drought so it is necessary to support irrigation; as a general rule it is a species very sensitive to salinity although there are standards with a certain tolerance.

This species needs good lighting to be able to fruit satisfactorily, so it is essential that the trees are not shaded. It is a very interesting tree both to exploit it commercially and to keep it in a small rustic farm or garden making the delights of all those who are lucky enough to have the opportunity to harvest its rich fruits, which have a long harvesting period and can be consumed both fresh and to make guacamole, salads, accompaniment to other dishes, cocktails, etc.
