I first saw an avocado tree when I was a child. My family went on a vacation to Mexico where I saw many of these trees. I became infatuated with the beautiful trees and the idea of growing them myself. At that time, we did not live in an area warm enough throughout the year to support avocado trees, so I put my plan on hold.
When I finally moved to a warm climate as an adult, I put my plan of growing avocados to work. I read all I could about the trees and bought the seeds. The plants grew quickly, but unfortunately, I moved before my trees produced any fruit. It can take several years.
