8ft avocado tree - how to care for?
I am in zone 10b (35-40F) and recently became the owner of an ~8 foot avocado tree that is in need of some serious love. I doubt it's seen any fertilizer or appropriate watering for about a year and unfortunately I do not know it's history.
Attached is an image of it. Can anyone elaborate if this is worth keeping alive in an attempt to bear fruit? I purchased some avocado citrus fertilizer and used the recommended amount, as well as watering it every other day or so for a month or so now.
It gets full sunlight, at least 8+hrs a day. If I continue caring for it, will I see fruit with the upcoming season, or maybe it's time to make space for something else?
Thanks in advance.
