How funny jkath I have always said the same, my dream has always been since I can remember that when I one day own my own home I have to have a lemon tree and an avocado tree and then my life would be complete...well I now own my own house but I now live in Ohio to where you can't grow them here!! :( :( I'll get over it...some day!

When we moved to this house, dh wanted a pool and a two-story. I wanted a big kitchen and an avo tree. Well, at least the insides were what we hoped for!

At least nowadays produce is almost everywhere - imagine if you couldn't get any CA, TX or FL fruits! yikes!

I'm not sure where the nearest avo tree is, and you have to have at least two within a very short distance for proper pollination & fruit. Also, they take years to grow and mature into such beauties. Better to have friends with trees who like to swap produce!

well do you at least have a lemon tree? I'm contemplating getting an indoor one just to have at least SOMETHING! I just can't let go of that dream!I remember hearing you needed a male and female tree for avos but I just asumed that was just when getting them started, I thought you could get them pre....impregnated....lol....from a nursery?

My citruses are my favorite trees :)
One's a meyer lemon (my pride and joy - only 8' high but yielded 300 fruit last year), one's a navel orange (not a big giant tree, but enough fruit to make us happy)
& a little lime that's only in it's second fruiting season. He's in a pot, and needs to be planted in the ground now that he's older.
