Ellis Farms to Host California Avocado Society Tour and Reception
As part of the California Avocado Society’s (CAS) 101st Annual Meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to tour the Ellis Farms Pauma Valley California avocado grove on October 7. The grove will also serve as the site of the CAS President’s Reception.
The tour of Ellis Farms will begin at 2:00 p.m. Ellis Farms produces the Hass Dusa® avocado. The Dusa® rootstock originated in South Africa and when paired with grafted Hass fruit, produces avocado trees that are high yielding, saline tolerant and resistant to Phytophthora root rot. Ellis Farms also uses the Brokaw method of growing. This method is a low-water-use, high-density production method. Those who register for the Ellis Farms tour, as part of the CAS Annual Meeting, will have the opportunity to learn more about the new rootstock and Brokaw growing method. The tour will be followed by the CAS President’s reception at 4:00 p.m.
The Ellis Farms Pauma Valley grove is located at 18162 Highway 76, Pauma Valley, California. The cost of the tour is $25.
