should I accept a free avocado tree or should I buy one?

11 years ago

I really want a avocado tree in my backyard. I purchased a young semi-dwarf avocado tree from Home Depot for $20. (It's still in the 5 gallon container so I can still return it.) However, my neighbor just gave me a free avocado tree growing in a plastic trash can. However, he has never seen it product fruit yet. The size of the tree is equivalent to the one they sell at Home Depot for over $100. The problem is the only thing my neighbor knows about his tree is that he planted it from a seed. Should I plant this free avocado tree or should I dispose of it? Should I plant the Home Depot tree or should I return it? Should I plant both trees since they need pollination anyway?
