What do I need to do to get my avocado tree to produce fruit? It flowers but no fruit sets. It was sold as a grafted tree.

If your tree flowers but doesn't set fruit, it's probably not being pollinated. Since avacado trees flower in the winter, there may not be enough insect activity to pollinate the flowers. You might want to plant a companion avocado tree that produces flowers at the same time, just to increase the chances of pollination taking place.
