5 yr old avocado tree grown from seed
I started an avocado tree from seed taken from a large smooth shiny skinned mango taken from a friend's backyard tree. I planted it in the ground October 2005 after being in a pot for a year and it has grown incredibly. It is roughly the same height as my coconut palm trees ( tall ). I will post a picture later tonight. I have heard that the male vs. female tree is a misconception. This tree is full, lush and has many strong limbs. I live in zone 10 and my yard seems to have something special going on as things just thrive well with minimal or no effort. I have mango trees, banana trees, coconut palms and this large avocado tree. Here is my question: Will this tree ever bear fruit? What is the usual time frame they mature enough to fruit? Is it possible it never will fruit? It is a beautiful tree but I would love to see it fruit-it wouldn't be complete if it didn't! Thanks for any help with this question!!!
