Looking to buy a Grafted Hass Avocado Tree. Any suggestions as to where?

Thanks!

I would check with Betty Gray at Gray River Farms.  I am not sure if she grafts them but I know she has quite a few that are growing fast.

I bought one from Gray River Farms at the monthly flea market two years ago.  It was grafted, but, alas, it didn't survive.  I'm not sure why.

I had the same problem, as did another friend of mine.

While I would not normally recommend this, a friend here in Volcan has grown a couple trees from Hass seeds. Kind of a crap shoot, but he claims the fruit from said trees is remarkably similar to that from his Hass clonal trees. Also, if I remember right, he claims to have gotten fruit from these seedlings after only 3-4 years. Might be worth a try.

BTW, avocado trees need excellent drainage. That and the selection of appropriate root stock may be key factors for success in growing these.
