I'd love to hear more about the nature of your setup, whether you'll be bringing it out in spring each year, how big of a pot you're thinking of, etc. Avocados do poorly in containers unless very large.

I'd be happy to send scions this winter, but my cultivars are all chosen for hardiness, not necessarily fruit quality, so they may not be what you'd want.

I've been growing several avocados from seed in containers since the pandemic...the root stock on one of them seems to be pretty strong. I bring them all inside for the winter. I successfully grafted a scion from one of my other plants (also grown from seed). I'd love to see if I can graft some fruit producing scion wood on to my root stock. If anyone has some scion wood and willing to share please let me know cost. Thanks!
