|I usually takes about 7 years for avocado trees to mature enough to bear fruit. Yours should be old enough so there may be some environmental or cultural reason for failure to bear. Don't feed your tree and make sure it is getting plenty of moisture during the spring and summer months. Watch to see if it flowers this coming season. If so, it should bear fruit; if not, you'll just have to be a little more patient with your tree. Wish I had more suggestions.
