Imagine being able to walk into your backyard, pick a fresh avocado, and slice it up on a piece of toast or add it to a salad. That’s the ultimate dream, right? Thanks to this kit, that dream can finally become a reality.

If you’ve ever tried to grow an avocado tree using the classic cup-and-toothpick method, this growing kit works much better. The AvoSeedo is a plastic “boat” with a hole where you insert an avocado pit. Just place it in a glass of water, watch it float, and wait for the pit to crack open and start germinating. After a few weeks, you’ll have a nice little sprout that’s ready to plant in a pot or in the ground.

The AvoSeedo requires a bit of patience. Reviewers note that it will take at least 5 to 10 (!!!) years for the avocado tree to actually produce fruit. But most people don’t seem to mind; they enjoy the process of growing a tree from a single seed. It’s also fun to experiment with avocado pits from different regions of the world.

“It’s been an exciting process to watch and makes us appreciate the time and care required for things to grow properly,” one five-star review reads.

Growing actual avocados is just the cherry on top.

“It is so fun to see it growing week by week, and it really makes you appreciate the no-rush pace of nature,” another five-star review reads.

Or, if you want to skip a few steps and jump straight to a sprout that’s ready to be planted in the ground, you can buy that on Amazon, too.

Happy growing!
