The rate of outcrossing in orchards containing `Hass' avocado (Persea americana Mill.) was determined using RAPD markers. The data represented 2393 fertilization events sampled from two climatic regions of southern California over a period of 4 years. In addition, three potential pollen sources (cultivars `Bacon', `Fuerte' and `Zutano') were investigated using RAPD markers speci®c to each pollen source.
