I have a few reliable places to buy trees online, but none of them will ship me citrus because I live in Texas. Does anyone out there know a vendor with a good selection located in texas?

These guys ship to you. https://www.fourwindsgrowers.com/index.php

Give them a call to confirm, I don't know anyone who has every used them so don't view this as a recommendation. Do your due diligence.

Andrea,

I bought my Haas Avocados at Houston Garden Center. The nearest to you is Tomball or Cypress. After September they will have all remaining stock at 50% off if you are not in a hurry. Unfortunately I lost mine to a winter frost (planted near Navasota.) Keep them covered in the winter.

Thanks, folks. Home Depot had some 'Fantastic' Avocados that really perked my interest today. I had given up on Avocados here in the Brazos. 'Fantastic' is suppose to be hardy down to 15 degrees, though, so I picked one up and made it to the register... where they wanted $40 for the little thing! Not happening. I'll be looking with much hope down the avenues you have provided!
