Q.Grafted Avocado Tree Seems To Be Growing From Both The Grafted Section And The Non Grafted Section

Zone 92120 San Diego zone 10b I think | Anonymous added on June 23, 2022 | Answered

A few months ago I purchase a 5 gallon Avocado Tree. I planted it and all the sprouts were growing as I expected from the grafted branch. But about a month ago a couple of sprouts started growing from what looks to me as the side just before the grafted branch is connected. And these sprouts are now almost as tall as the other branches. So my question is should I do anything like cutting the questionable branches coming out of the non grafted side, or is it better just to let everything grow?

Yes, those questionable shoots need to be removed or the non-graft can take over the grafted part. Here's an article that will help:
