3: An avocado pit will grow into an avocado tree.
Clean the pit. Insert toothpicks into the pit. Add some water to a small, slender container (preferably
glass) until it reaches the top rim. Set your avocado pit (with inserted toothpicks) on the top rim of the container. Wait for the pit to sprout. Change the water every 1-2 days. Over the next 2-3 weeks, the avocado's brown outer layer will begin to dry out
and wrinkle, eventually sloughing off. Soon after, the pit should begin to split open at the top and bottom. After 3-4 weeks, a taproot should begin to emerge at the base of the pit. Soon, the avocado will sprout at the top, releasing an unfolding leaf-bud
that will open and begin to grow a shoot bearing leaves.
