We know what you’re thinking – why don’t I just grow a tree from the seed in the avocado I bought from the supermarket? Be aware that it can take up to 10 years before it produces any fruit (if any!). Buy a tree from a nursery and it will only take 4-6 years, depending on the variety. So ‘avo go!
Avocados can be grown from seed, but they can take up to 10 years to produce fruit, if you’re lucky. Also, it’s not guaranteed they will produce the same fruit nor fruit well and the quality of the fruit may also be poor. So, it’s best to plant grafted varieties as they will produce fruit in a shorter amount of time and guarantee the fruit type and quality.
