your avacado tree need not grow larger than you want. we have a number growing in our orchard and whilst some varieties only grow to 4-5m ,the taller types can be pruned to this height and still bear productively.
I just take them out to the rafts as soon after I have eaten them as possible. I never bother to let them dry. I have one about 12 in tall still in the raft with 2 more seeds that a starting to sprout. My problem is I can't grow an avacado tree for anything w2ether I buy it or sprout it. I have had one grow to 20 ft but never has more than 5 fruit. One thing I did in the raft system is sprout an ulu tree (breadfruit) from seed. My friend who is an avid gardner and who grew up in Samoa says I made history. Ulu are not grown that way. They take a piece of the root. Never the less I have a very healthy ulu tree about 18 inches high. I wanted to buy one but couldn't find one so I sprouted it. Aquaponics can even do miracles
