Easily Grow Your Avocado Pits!

We are often asked how to successfully grow an avocado tree from an avocado pit. Here is the foolproof method:

Germinate your avocado seed

Clean your avocado pit under running water to get rid of clinging pulp and prevent mould.
Let it soak for a day or two in a glass of water. Then remove the outer skin from the core.
Then wrap your avocado pit in paper towel or damp cotton and place it in an airtight freezer-type bag that you close.
Store the sachet in a warm place. And wait!

After a few days the seed starts to split and after about two weeks you will see the first root appear.
Wait until it measures a few centimeters to take the core out of the bag.

Grow your avocado tree

Once your avocado seed has sprouted and has roots a few inches deep, all you have to do is plant it in the ground .

You can also grow it in water using, for example, a Botanopia size L germination dish or a Kinto aquaculture vase available on the Jardiniste eshop.
Then place the pit on the dish with the root in the water, letting the bottom of the pit touch the water.
Wait a few more weeks before you have the joy of seeing the first leaves appear!
