having 'a' & 'b' trees not totally necessary as all trees will bare
male and female flowers at some stage of their fruiting cycle, having
the 2 of certain varities extends your fruiting season ie.,. when the
'a' tree has its female flowers the 'b' tree has its male flowers and
some varieties don't need 'a' or 'b' ever.
the only thing with a seedling tree is how long before it fruits could
take up to 14 years maybe? but the other side and i avhe heard both
stories you have no guarantee that the tree will fruit to form or even
fruit at all, or at best it may give very poor quality fruit.
if yo realy like avacado's and most of us do the best advice is go buy
a grafted tree and if you are short on garden space seek a variety
where 'a' & 'b' plays no part, or just buy one or the other you will
get fruit. grafted trees as i know it fruit with in 5 to 7 years i had
one fruit in 3 years that may be variety specific?
