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
