Hi,
I have a 10 year old avacado tree I grew from seed.
Never has had any fruit or even flowers.
Its a beutiful tree and quite large.
I would like to graft onto this magnificent root stock.
I have never grafted but would love to give it a try.
I am in zone 10 Boca Raton fl 2 miles from the coast.
Can I graft HASS or some other variety Avacado scions onto this tree?
Can I graft various types as well?
Thank you.

If you like guatemalan varieties I would graft several varieties. Avacados are classified by two types depending on when the flowers open.
For type A I would graft Lamb Hass and Reed. If you are limited on space I would graft a dwarf variety called Holiday.

For type B I would graft Bacon or Fuente.

I am not sure about the mexican varieties but I heard Sir Prize was a good one.

I would look here to select your variety

A couple of days ago I had a Sir Prize from California, grown in a friends home. What a nice and tasty avocado. Puts all Florida cultivars to shame. I hope it grows in Florida, even close would be nice.
