How to grow an avocado tree from an avocado seed !
Avocado seeds are relatively easy to sprout and is a great DIY project for kids or anyone!
Save the seed from the next avocado you eat and you can grow it so easily with a simple method – your very own New Zealand avocado tree! But if you want to pick your first fresh avocado you will need to be patient – some trees will take up to 5 years before growing their first fruit!
Here is the 4 Easy steps :
1. Remove the seed from the avocado and clean the flesh from it
2. Skewer the seed around the centre with four toothpicks ensuring you locate the small bump at the bottom of the seed.
3. Place seed on a jar of water with the tooth picks resting on the rim, ensuring the bottom half is submerged.
4. Sprouting can take between 2 and 8 weeks. Once the sprout reaches about 20cm pot in soil.
