    Default I've got Avocados

    I started this tree from seed the first winter we came to Fla which was 2001. Last year I didn't see it bloom but I had one tiny avocado that never matured. This year it bloomed profusely and I have maybe 20 or 30 fruit. Now if they don't get blown off in a hurricane I might get to eat one. Oh boy Oh boy !!!

    Wow, that is really cool. I am surprised it grew so fast. I thought they took forever to grow. That is wonderful. Did you photo the blooms? I have never seen an avocado bloom. Are they white?

    Cheers,

    My friend would love one of those! We have neighbors that sell theirs out of a box and she just loves them. I'll have to tell her we can sneak down and pilfer some of yours. muhahaha That looks like it'll be holding some orchids soon...it's going to be a big one.

    No BD I did not take a pic of the blooms but they are pretty nondescript somewhat like a mango, if you have ever had the pleasure.
