Can you grow avocado trees in New Jersey?

Yes, with caveats. Most avocado trees will die in the cold, true, if left alone. Articles I've seen from growers say that 32 degrees F or below would certainly kill an avocado tree. There are a couple of varieties that will survive to 18 degrees. Here in New Jersey, winter weather can be very unpredictable, so why chance leaving your avocado out to the elements?

Avocado trees grown in New Jersey can be brought indoors in cold weather. They can also be kept in a sheltered or heated greenhouse in cold weather.

Plant the tree in soil with good drainage, a mix of sand, bark and perlite is recommended. Use a container that is ceramic or of natural material with lots of drain holes. Important, too, is watering. Too much water or water left standing around the roots will cause root rot and that will cause the tree to die. Using proper soil and container when watering reduces the risk of root rot.

Is an avocado a fruit or a vegetable?

It's a Fruit

Avocados contain a large seed, which classifies them as fruit.

There is no single definition of "fruit" and "berry" that is in universal use. But in botanical terms, Avocados are not just fruits; more specifically, they are berries. For a fruit to be classified a berry, it must develop from a single ovary. The avocado, banana, watermelon and tomato are some examples of fruits we usually don't call berries, but that actually are berries by this definition. Strawberries on the other hand, are fruits but not berries by the same definition.

Some people recommend using flour or rice in the bag instead, but I haven't tried it.
