Can I grow an avocado tree indoors?

Avocado growing indoors can start with a pit but is most successful with a healthy grafted dwarf tree. Cultivated avocados are grown from compatible rootstock. A plant produced from a seed is less likely to produce fruit, but it will make a lovely tree. Remove the pit from a ripe avocado and rinse off any excess flesh.

Furthermore, how tall will an avocado tree grow indoors?

Some avocado trees grow to reach a height of 80 feet, with most getting 20 to 40 feet tall. Don't let this scare you away from enjoying your own avocados! There are several dwarf varieties that do well indoors. You can start avocados from seeds (stones), but it takes years to bear fruit.

Also, when should I bring my avocado plant inside? Although minimum winter temperatures differ in these two zones, the first frost usually arrives between mid-November and mid-December in both zones, so it's best to move a frost-tender avocado tree indoors by early November.

Also to know is, how long does it take for an avocado tree to bear fruit?

If you grew your tree from an avocado pit, it won't bear fruit until it's at least 10 years old, and you may have to wait up to 15 years. On the other hand, if you planted a tree from a nursery or garden center, the tree should begin to produce a crop after three or four years.

How much light do Avocado trees need?
