I am new to gardening. We just bought our first house (in Atlanta, GA), and my husband and I would like to have an avocado tree that produces edible fruit. I have done a little web browsing and found recommendations for Mexican varieties that can withstand cold temperatures. I also read that they should be grafted in order to produce edible fruit in a few year's time. I've seen some recommendations for dwarfs which could potentially be brought indoors (though I think we would prefer if the tree could stay outside). I found a really interesting recommendation for one avocado tree called a "Fantastic Avocado" which is supposedly the most hardy of all the Mexican varieties. Plus, you eat the whole thing, including the skin! Here is a link-the mention is at the bottom of the page.http://www.urbanharvest.org/advice/f.../avocados.html
The big question I have is where can I buy any of these and how much will they cost? Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
