Grafting A Pollinator For Holiday Avocado

Gardening Question From Charles:

We have a young Holiday avocado, 10 ft tall and about 5 years old. It has given us about 13 large avocados last year.  At this time we have 5 hanging on the tree.  We did not know when we bought the tree that it yielded fruit every other year.  We’d like to improve our harvest.  What can we do?

Answer From Pat:

My advice is that if you have room plant a second avocado tree that can act as a pollinator. Be sure to choose a more productive variety and rely on that one for your fruit.
