I just learned avacado pits, are possibly edible, it's in debate -- I bit one and kinda liked it's bitter taste... call me weird. Some put them in smoothies, you need a super good blender to do so and most use only 1/2 a pit -- moongazerlily
How to grow an avocado tree Wrap in moist paper towel and place in a ziploc baggy, seal. Place bag in a warm, sunny spot or somewhere warm (ideas: top of fridge, your computer monitor, television, under sink). Once it starts sprouting and the roots are about 2″ long, plant in 10" diameter pot. Water when soil is dry, feed plant food 1/2 times a month.
