The Q&A Archives: Fuit-Bearing Avocado from Seed

Question: I have asked many garden "experts" about the potential of avocadoes grown from seed to bear fruit. Every person seems to have a different answer

Answer: Seed grown avocadoes should eventually produce fruit, but will take longer than grafted varieties and the quality of the fruit may not be up to snuff. Plant your avocado in full sun and fertile soil that's well drained. Fertilize it well and hopefullydown the road (5-10 years), you'll begin getting fruit. There is also a possibility that it will bear sparsely or not at all. If you select fruit from strong bearing trees, there is less likelihood for this to happen, but because the variety will not come true from seed, it's still possible.
