I live in socal, I have a avocado tree thats about 15 yrs or so. Never had problems with it always produce lots of fruits. I don't remember it ever dropping young fruts off the tree. They are small n some about the size of a egg n smaller n some are very small n black. I would guess we have lost about close to least 100 pcs or more.
Any ideas or solutions?

Thanks Terry

I'm new to avocado growing, so I'm still doing my homework. But 'cado fruit drop appears to be similar to citrus. The issue can be tied to poor pollination and/or the amount of fruit that the tree can safely bear. Here is a decent link regarding Fruit Drop.
Since avocado fruit drop is fairly common it shouldn't be a cause for concern unless all your fruit is lost.
