here is a message I received from a family farm which grows this "Duke" avocado. It is both tolerant of poor drainage soils and cold tolerant to 19 degrees f. :

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your interest in our Duke Avocado. Unfortunately we do not sell trees nor do we know anyone who does. During the season that we are selling them many people choose to purchase the avocados and propagate them from the pit. We do not ship avocados or pits or cuttings. You would need to purchase the ripe avocados directly from the farm during the harvest season which is typically from the first of September until mid-October. Our apologies in advance for any difficulties that this may cause you, however this policy is the best fit for our farm and family life. If you do find someone who sells them please let us know as we receive regular inquiries. Thanks again for contacting us. Have a wonderful day!
