Stop Buying Avocados. Here’s How to Grow an Avocado Tree from Seed

Highly flavored and nutritious, avocados signal a healthy diet, whether we’re talking about guacamole or salad. If you like not having to make regular trips to the grocery for your daily supply of fresh avocados, try growing an avocado tree at home. It’s surprisingly easy. In 10 easy steps, you will see how you too can get a full-grown avocado tree from a little seed, making the whole process very educational and easy to remember.

STEP 1: Without cutting the pit from the avocado, remove and wash clean of all the avocado fruit. You might find it helpful to soak the pit for a few minutes in some water. But make sure you don’t remove the brown skin from the pit!



STEP 2: All avocado pits, despite not being perfect round shapes, have a top and bottom side. From the ‘bottom’, the future roots will grow, as for the ‘top’ the sprout will do the same. You can find which is which by looking after the slightly pointier end. When you noticed that, you found the top. In opposition, the bottom will have a flat end. It’s important to place the bottom in water, so the roots will begin to gently grow.

    Great fun to grow a tree from the seed but you need a male and female tree to pollinate and grow fruit, so why not plant a few trees? ???

    You guys, do your research. it takes 10 to 15 years for an avocado tree to start bearing fruit. You can do this if you want, just dont expect to see results for a very long time.
    Not to mention the avocados will probably be gross due to the soil and growing conditions.

  6. Sandy says:
