    (Seriously) Someone told me that if I bury a raw fish near the roots of the avocado tree; it will produce more avocados. Is this true?

    You can use human urine around citrus trees, but you need to break it down. I don't know about fish under the tree. If it was a shark, I guess it would fertilize the tree. Do a search on google, that's what I do.

    I'm sorry. A raw fish will not produce any avocados.

    Really, I don't know what he was thinking.
    (Maybe cat urine!)

    It's so late here and I'm so exhausted; I don't mean to poke fun at the question. In fact, the raw fish may fertilize the soil around the tree and result in all kinds of good stuff.

    Cat urine is not good on anything you want to stay alive

    Thanks Bob and eggplant! Bob? Anyhoo....
    You've made me laugh! I don't know about a shark or any of that deep sea stuff, Breaking down human urine doesn't sound like horticulture to me either......maybe I could just grow fish; buy avocados; and pee in the toilet......that sounds clean and cost effective! Need more data...Nighty Night.

    If you remember, the Indians showed the pilgrims how to place a small fish under a corn plant so it would grow in sandy soil. I know that does work I have seen it done however I have never seen it done with an avocado tree because they don’t grow in my neck of the woods.


    The Wampanoag Indians


    Indians of New England

    The Wampanoag Indians of Massachusetts and Rhode Island were proficient farmers and fishers. Over many generations, they cleared and planted thousands of acres of crops: many varieties of corn, beans, pumpkins, squashes and gourds, tobacco, melons, strawberries, and edible tubers. They dried and preserved corn and other vegetables for winter use.


    They were efficient at harvesting fish, clams, eels, oysters, and crabs. From the woodlands and meadows they hunted and trapped deer, bear, rabbits, beavers, ducks, geese, turkeys, partridges and swans. Meats and fish were dried and preserved for winter.

    I forgot all about that. Good on you Ed1530! Thanks for the history lesson. Very cool beans

    Ed is your information based on the original people as rabbits as I know wwere not native to the Americas nor were swans not even sure about deer or partridges.


    They seem very European to me.


    Could be wrong but!

    I did not catch that and you may be right about the swans and partridges however, the rest you see I know where here. Thank you I will look into that.
