Hodgson (10) suggested many years ago that "a semi-dwarfing rootstock might be advantageous for vigorous (avocado) varieties." The major California variety, Fuerte, is slow to come into bearing; also it commonly sets too little fruit, while showing great vegetative vigor. Apart from possible advantages of earlier and better fruit set, growers have pointed out that shorter trees would reduce picking costs—an important consideration in the present period of very small profit margins.
