Our family goes through, on average, two avocados a day. Living in the midwest, we probably won’t ever have a grove of avocado trees from which to harvest our own, but it’s nice to dream and just see what happens! So, I’m thrilled because not only can I make use of one of the pits, I can watch God’s handwork in action right on my counter!
This would be a great activity for a homeschooling family – especially in the winter when garden type activities are on hold. It’s easy, inexpensive, and fun! You could cut and clean out several avocados, make some guacamole and then get the pits ready with the Avoseedo. Keep a daily log of what’s happening (handwriting, observation skills, etc.,) and take a photo each day. Then right after you plant the growing tree in dirt, take your photos and use a time lapse app to put it together to show how it all happened. So much fun! I can’t wait!
The kit comes with everything you need. This:
And the instructions … which are important but pretty easy!
How It Works Watch how to grow an Avocado tree with AvoSeedo
1. Get an avocado, cut it open and remove the pit 2. Peel away the thin skin from the avocado pit 3. Put the pit flat part down into the AvoSeedo tray 4. Place the AvoSeedo tray with avocado pit into a bowl of water 5. Change the water every two to three weeks 6.The seed will sprout and a tiny avocado tree will grow after one to three months 7. Transfer the budding tree into a pot 8. Reuse the AvoSeedo to grow more avocados
The only problem? Make sure you have a big enough pit to securely fit in there.
And that’s it! Give it a go.
Here’s the fun thing – this doesn’t work just for avocados! You can use it to regrow celery, carrots, etc, from scraps too!
