Your Cold Hardy Avocado Tree can grow in a variety of ways to suit your needs and liking. For a larger tree, plant outdoors and watch it soar to heights of 20-30 feet. Or, for a shorter tree, plant in a container and you can limit growth from 5-7 feet tall. Many growers find this method optimal for moving the tree between indoors and out. Not grown for its aesthetic appeal, a single Cold Hardy Avocado tree may have more than one trunk, a trait that is helpful in carrying out the trees main purpose: producing more delicious avocados for many years to come.
Produces Fruit up to 7 Years Sooner than Seed Grown Avocado Trees...
Unfortunately many nurseries still sell seed grown trees because they are cheaper and easier to propagate. We don't grow from seed... all of our Avocado Trees are grafted from carefully selected stock. This insures that you get a hardier tree... proven to produce great tasting avocados without having to wait 7 years to mature. Our larger sizes commonly bear fruit their very first year. They also sell out, so we recommend that you order yours today.
