My avocado tree is just now starting to flower. Good thing though, because all last week the high winds have knocked off a lot of the avocado blossoms from other avocado trees that have already flowered.

Neighbor has his dwarf avocado flowering now, though just started. Looking for a dwarf avocado that will bear fruit in winter & spring rather than summer or fall. Any suggestions?

FerraraSR: I don't know if any true dwarf Avocados I know on craiglist there was a man selling a dwarf holiday vari avocado upcountry I have never heared of this vari, I would plant a Ota or Fujikawa vari avocado I think they flower in the winter and are pretty good avocados you can keep them small by pruning 2 times a year and can keep the tree at a manageable height.

Thanks for the input, will try to find that variety. Went to kihana nursery & they said they were getting some dwarf avocados in but did not have a variety name or information on bearing time.

Ya if their dwarf avos then there should be a variety, i would check the trees when they bring it in, check for a graft mark where the garfted on the scion to the rootstock you would see the callus and the wax tape on the stock of the tree. If not then dont buy, because avos produce fruit from 7-10 yrs from seed and in the end you dont even know what your getting, they could be just selling those trees as grafted dwarf avos when they could be seedlings.
