Growing An Avocado From Seed

Avocado Seed

Avocados are usually grown from pits indoors. To grow your own avocado, it is done by removing the pit from a ripe, avocado that has not been refrigerated. Using three or four toothpicks, the pit is then stabbed, about one third of the way up. Place the pit in a jar or vase with tepid water. The pit will split in four to six weeks, when that happens you will see roots and a sprout. When the stem has grown a few inches, it is time to plant it in a pot with soil. It should then be watered every few days. Avocados can grow very large, so be prepared to transplant it to a bigger pot several times as necessary. The fruit that your avocado produces will be identical to the parent avocado. My favorite is the Haas Avocado
