Do You Know What This Is?


Seedling

I have tried many times to grow an avocado tree...but never could get one to start.
When Kira came home from her mission in Argentina she had a picture of one of the Hermana's avocado trees...it was awesome...and no I could not find the picture to post it.
So, when I bought avocados the other day, Kira taught me what I was doing wrong.
You need to soak the seed so that the brown covering will peel off, then place the toothpicks in the seed and place it in water.
Within two days I had roots and the seedling is about 10 days old!
Who knows maybe someday it will actually become a tree!

That is way cool! Keep us updated on your plant's progress. If I don't kill off any of my current plants this summer, I may have to give avacado farming a try next year.

Avocado trees are beautiful. We had two in our front yard in Texas. They are so full and shady. Can they grow in Idaho with the freeze and all?
