I Also Lost Half Of The 7ft Avacado Tree that I planted From Seed About 2 Years ago , But The Lower Half If Alive & Has New Growth , I Guess It Will Be A dwarf Avacado.
I also Bought a LiLa Avacado Tree about 8Ft Tall Grafted , Its The 2nd Most Cold Hardy Avacado Tree Next To The Joey .
The Avacado Tree Can Take Upto 18f It should be Ok With NE Florida.
Thanks Ed..
I'd be suspicious of those tags saying how much cold they can take.. Maybe a 12 year old plant, but not a young one. I saw a Lila Avocado @ Lowe's and it was growing like madd compared to the rest.. Glad your test worked.. :^)

That way will also work in PR, but the center part of the original corm will rot in a few days.

I use the outer corm method so to keep rot to a minimum.

When you repot or plant, check to see if it rotted.
