Lol Bro! You dont wana know! Hahaha

But yeah, i've got a small Avo tree that needs grafting so it can get bigger and produce some avo's. Found out avo's grown from seed only produce fruit after 15 - 20 years of maturity!

Would be easier to take  a cutting and root it. It's also very late in the season to be taking cuttings from an avo , usually you want to do it in spring when there is lots of new growth on the tree. Also good to remember even from cutting or grafting it could take up to 7 years to produce fruit. If you get really desperate I can check my tree to see if there any viable placing to take cutting .

Thanx GLO! Im not in a hurry, i can wait till your tree starts budding. 7 years is better than 20 years! :) We'll pick this up in spring then thanx

This is actually very intresting.. Looked into it a wile back.. Hb it will be faster if you got at least 2-3 trees in the same fisinaty ( slaughter that word). Avos do polinate themself but you always get the odd ones that dont.. This way you will get rewarded sooner than later.. Also, you can buy young avo trees from zz something, the tomato guys.. They have loads of info online..
