      Is everything big in Florida? Every time I see a video on fruit it is enormous!
      By the way I noticed that the avocado seed had a root starting to grow. Does this happen inside the fruit or have you planted it previously?
      Thanks for posting

      @starryian007 I have a Fuerte avocado in my backyard. If you let the fruit get really ripe, the roots will start to grow inside the avocado. I live in Southern California and my fruit gets as big as the one in the video.
      You will want to graft your seedling later to ensure you have good fruit quality.

      I tried this with a store bought organic avocado as well as an avocado from a friends tree. After 3 months, nothing happened at all. What did I do wrong? I water it so the bottom half is submerged (I’m using bottled water, should I use tap?), and I used wooden toothpicks. Please advise.
