Are there any dwarf avocado trees?
Also know, what is the best dwarf avocado tree?

Also Know, will a potted avocado tree bear fruit? Do not expect fruit when growing avocados in containers. Indoor plants need cool nights to force blooming and fruiting. They can also take up to ten years to get to fruiting stage. If you do get fruit, the flavor is not as good as those commercially produce from rootstocks.
Moreover, how do you take care of a dwarf avocado tree?
Avocado trees grow best in full sun in a fine sandy loam soil with excellent drainage. They won't tolerate heavy, clay soils well. Pick a spot for your avocado tree that is protected from heavy winds, which can cause fruit drop and defoliation.

Identify the avocado tree by looking at its leaves, which should be alternate and dark-green with slightly lighter-green veins. The avocado leaves are glossy and can stay on the tree for up to three years. The leaves of Mexican avocado trees have an anise-like odor when crushed.
