A while ago I grew tired of trying to grow an avocado tree from a seed. You know, by putting toothpicks in the side of the seed and hovering it over a glass of water until it sprouts.

So I just cleaned off a seed and stuck in the ground. Three years later an avocado plant started to grow there. And it turned into a little tree. Sadly I moved away before we found out if it could bear fruit. But I remember reading it took many years, like 20, before it could yield avocados.

Now-a-days I have much better luck with basil and we have lots of fresh pesto.


Aloha Ken,
I think you could grow pineapples in Florida. I assume you can get them at your local market imported from some other country. Let me know if you decide to give it a try!


That is so neat! I am going to give this a try with my dad at his greenhouse. Thanks for the information!


You're welcome Sheila. Don't forget to take a photo afterwards, you are a great photographer!


My mum and dad have been to Hawaii twice and went to a pineapple plantation. It's funny how there's a popular party song which has the words "shake a pineapple off the tree", yet they grow on the ground!

Somehow I don't think I would have much success growing them in Scotland!



Scottish people can grow anything!
