We had one my mom started when she got hitched to dad, it grew, and grew, grew...then us kids came along and we needed a rope swing, so guess where it went...the avocado tree
, I use to climb it up till I was about 13 years old (yes I was climber), but because we lived in S.F. Calif, it never got fruit on it. At my grandparents farm (Hawaii) they had so many avocado trees
with fruit on them, us kids would climb the different ones and 'bomb' each other with the fruits, trying to knock each other out of the trees
. dangerous, yes...fun, absolutly!!
