How long does it take for the avocado to mature on my tree grown from seed? I have several avocados now and am waiting for them to grow, the flowers started around March or April.

My 2 avocado trees are over 7-8 feet tall and look like they now have tiny yellow flowers and are pollinating. They are next to each other in our back yard and look great. They are 6 or 7 yrs old. Will they start to have fruit soon? How should I treat them? Any info you can give me will be helpful. Thank you.

I don't know the care for them, but I do know you have to have a male and female tree or at least one of the opposite of what you have near by. My grandmother had a female tree and a neighbor had a male. She had wonderful avocados, which she shared with the neighbor. Hopefully someone around you has the opposite of yours.
Good luck. (05/11/2008)
