Avocado trees usually flower and bear fruit when they are 3-5 years of age so yours should be producing lots of fruit. Avocado trees have both male and female flowers on the same tree so you don't need a second tree for good fruit set. It's important, though, that there's lots of bee activity to move the pollen from the male to the female flowers. For this reason it's best not to use a lot of pesticides in your yard, and you can hedge your bet by growing lots of colorful annuals and perennials to attract bees to your yard. Best wishes with your avocado tree.
