I don't think you'll be successful with an avocado tree in your growing region. There is rumor of one growing in a landscape in Gold Beach, but I've never seen it! While your temperatures are moderate during the winter months, the summer isn't quite long enough or hot enough for avocado fruit to form. Wish I had better news!
