Old vs New Avocado tree
I purchased a 15 gallon Holiday avocado 1 year ago, that started out at about 5 feet tall. It grew a foot and then this past winter the top 1.5 feet froze and died, as did many growing limbs.
Spring is upon us and new growth is returning, but I'm wondering if I should replace this tree with a new 5 gallon avocado that, while younger, is just as tall and has more growth on it. If fruit growth is based more on age, then i think I'd keep the original. What do you guys think?
Because the leading shaft froze off, will the tree continue to grow up or is it now stuck at it's current height?
