OK Permies, gotta quick and easy question. Where, who has any info on avacado or nrctarine trees this time of year? Will place in pots for a year or two, but may keep in pots for winter green house. I would be interested in a business or purchase from an individual person, like another permies. Thanks. Rich

How many you looking for? Do you have a grocery store? Most big growers start their avos from seed and then graft shoot stock for the famous Hass, in CA. I think though for a home orchard you can go ahead and just see if the fruits worth keeping. Avos I hear take 5 years to produce, I think peaches/nectarines 3. That's about the same amount of time, I find, as what  I get from the local home improvement store on the stone fruit.

Steve, I happen to live fairly close to you, I am in Duluth  just south of you.  I have started some avocados  and have a few plant that are about a foot high.  If you are interested maybe we can swap or discuss otherwise and I am most interested in trades / swaps.  I also have a large amount of aloe if you are interested and some citrus small trees, these seed are from the citrus fruit that came from Uncle Matt's Organic in Fla...most tasty once they grow up .  Let me know.  I will check tomorrow in my po-dunk greenhouse as well as my downstairs to give you a count if you want to go further.. You can call or text me at 770-337-0305 Be most happy to help.. Terree

Also search for chestnut hill tree farm near gainesville fl...  They have a nice looking assortment. And some good info on their sight.
If you were a tree, what sort of tree would you be? This tiny ad is a poop beast.
