Avocado Tree


ckellerjr added on April 23, 2016 | Answered

I planted an avocado seed 16 years ago and this year is the first year for it to have flowers. The flowers open and within a few days they are gone. No fruit. Across from this tree is another tree belonging to my neighbor which was planted from seed about 5 years ago. His tree had fruit last year but this year he had the same problem, flowers and five fruits - but as soon as they were about pea size, they fell off. These two trees are about 20 feet apart.
