Growing an Avocado Plant Inside

I plan on growing an avocado tree or bush indoors due to the cold winters we have. Can it ever bear fruit?

Hardiness Zone: 6a

Go to and the university of florida can tell you. My experience is no and all the information I have found says no due to the size of the tree at fruiting and ect. I live in South Georgia and I cannot grow it outside here.

I don't know if you can get it to bloom & produce fruit, but a long time ago. I heard this story about this man who couldn't get his avocado tree to produce. He heard that if you beat the tree with a baseball bat. The tree thinks it's it danger & it causes it to bloom & give fruit. My sister tried this, I think & it worked. I do know that you have to have another avocado tree in the neighborhood for cross pollination. Without this, there's no chance.
