I feel so dumb to post this, but feel I need to do it since no one else has posted. I thought that all avacados were female. The reason I thought that was because female plants are the ones that have flowers and fruit (the avacado). OK, I know flowers have both male and female parts. So, I guess that makes them bisexual, huh? At least maybe I've got you thinking. lol

I do know there are male and female holly trees. To get berries on the female, the male needs to be present as well. So when you plant hollies you plant two, one male and one female.

Good luck!

According to the California Avocado Commission, http://www.avoc … growing-avocado, most avocados grown from seeds usually don't taste good. They graft trees to make them produce.

Thanks for the feedback from both of you. Certainly makes sense. Now I won't waste my time looking for great avocadoes!

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE MALE TREE HAS LONG STALKS ON THE FRUIT SOMETHING LIKE THE PAW PAW FRUIT ?
