I was wondering if any one here knows of some cold hardy Avocado varieties? And maybe where to get some if that's okay to post.

Forgot to mention I'm in zone 8b (Central Texas).

There are a couple that are hardy to about 20 degrees, one being Joey. I will have to look up the other. I know that North Haven Gardens in Dallas had some but you may want to call them and ask if they are still there.

Thank you Sanhi. I was thinking there were some that could tolerate down to the teens. I guess I'll have to nix this ideal.

You can always put them in large pots, like people do with citrus. It's a hassle but not many in Texas can say they grow avocados!
