Persea americana is its name.

It suffers temperatures below 4 C degrees, so if I want to try to grow it, I ‘ve to try it in my home.

So I ‘ve bought a very ripe avocado at the market and I’ve cut it so to pick up the big seed.

I’ve cleaned it from its ‘skin protection’ and put it into soil.

I keep it moist on my kitchen window sill.

After about ten days it started to open in the middle and to develop a little plant.

Here some photos waiting for news.

In the second one, it’s possible to see in the centre of the seed the new plant coming.

Growing ananas.

I’m trying to grow ananas.

I’ve bought an ananas at the market.


Then I’ve cut off the green top


and I’ve removed the dried leaves at the bottom, so to find little roots ready to develop, and I’ve put it in to water.


And now I’m waiting for news.
