Avocado Trees

Anonymous added on August 1, 2011 | Answered

If you root an avocado seed from an avocado you buy at the grocery store, when the tree grows, will it have fruit on it? Or do you have to graft the tree? Or something else? If you use the tree as a house plant, how should you trim it to keep it from growing too tall for the house? What size flower pot should it be planted in?

You probably won't get any fruit, especially if you choose to grow it as a houseplant, but it's still fun to try and the plant is quite attractive. These articles should help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/children/sprouting-avocado-pits-how-to-root-an-avocado-seed.htm
