Today John the Farmer is germinating an avo pit.

Remove and clean pit. Make sure the narrow end points up. Don’t remove the brown skin.

Insert 3-4 toothpicks into the pit around the equator at a slight angle so that the pit rests in the water of your cup/ bowl/ glass.

Remember to top up with water as required.

Your Avocado pit will first root then shoot will appear.

Wait till young sapling has a few sets of leaves before transplanting out so that the top of the pit just sticks above ground.

Avocado’s are monoecious so they have both male and female flowers which don’t open at the same time so one should plant at least two nearby.
