I live in Brisbane and have put in a Pinkerton (A) and a Sharwill (B) and a Sheppard (B). Hope this helps - I did a heap of research on the subject.
Cheers

To give you an idea of the size of a mature Shepard avocado tree, I have attached a few pictures. Unfortunately the tree was cut down so I found some historical Google Earth pictures from 2002 when the tree was still there.

Picture 3 shows a current street view and another tree that still stands (for a size comparison). Note the Shepard was somewhat larger than this tree. I estimated it at around 15 - 20 metres tall and about the same wide. Picture 2 confirms the width estimation as nearly 20 metres.

Also note that this is in Sydney and the buildings are 3 storey apartment blocks. The Shepard avocado was as tall as them, and actually can be seen casting a shadow on another building (also demolished) that I think may have been an old Masonic hall (or something of the like).

My Dad used to call anything taller than the clothes line 'too big', so if you're like my Dad, that Shepard is going to take some pruning to keep it from becoming a 'massive tree' some time down the line.
