for those that want to grow dwarf avocado trees,here's my experience with avocados.
i bought a gwen avocado which is supposed to be a semi dwarf.the tree is now about 9yrs old and has given me lots of fruit,but here is the good part.
i have kept the tree cut down to about 6 feet and is doing great.year before last i grafted it on to a seedling.my new tree is bout 5 feet tall and is loaded with blossoms.my story is,don't be afraid to keep your trees cut low.

Mmmmmmmm, an avocado tree. That sounds so delicious! Congratulations on grafting it!! I wonder, what zone is good for a dwarf avocado tree? My hubby is really going to roll his eyes when he hears I want one of those!

Sarah,
tell your husband to get ready for a real surprise.
i strongly believe that you can have your own avocado tree. and i believe you can be enjoyingy avocados in a year or two.
go to this site GrowQuest.com.
Let ne know how you come out.
