|Immaturity may be to blame, or lack of sufficient sunshine. Make sure your tree gets enough sun each day. Avocado trees begin to develop fruit at 8-10 years of age if they get adequate sunshine. Patience is the only thing you need, especially if your tree develops flowers. Insects will transfer pollen which will result in fruit so be careful with pesticides so you don't repel the pollinating insects. Best wishes with your tree!
