  • Growing Avocados. While avocados are a tropical fruit more suited to the humid regions of Mexico and Central America, it doesn't mean they can not be grown successfully in the UK. The trees can grow to up to 20m and can take up to 10 years to fruit. If you want to grow an avocado tree, it's best to raise it as an indoor plant. The trees don't tolerate freezing temperatures.
