Growing An Avocado Plant


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
