Wind machine tower for frost protection in an orchardFrost Injury and Control

Avocado flesh can turn black from exposure to cold. When severe, fruit can develop brown, water-soaked spots in the skin, gray areas in the flesh, and may even crack or split.

Test frost control systems by November and apply frost protections when warranted from about November through March, especially if growing on flat land.
