Avocado trees grown from seeds can actually bear fruit. Not all seedlings will produce avocados, but if the conditions are right, many will! Seedlings generally begin to blossom and produce fruit after three to five years. If your tree is 5 years old, it may bear fruit within the next few years. Watch closely to see if it flowers. If so, it has the potential to bear fruit. As long as the weather is not too cold or damp during the flowering period the flowers should be pollinated by winds and/or insects and fruit should result. Hope it does eventually bear fruit for you.
