    What a great idea! You can also grow a plant from an avocado pit.

    We did this in Florida-it grew great on the windowsill. We left it there like 2 months, though, because we forgot. Anyway, we finally put it outside, and it’s 1.5 years old now and humongous. It is now 40 inches wide and 32 inches tall! I hope it will make a fruit this spring.

    I live in Florida, and have nice weather conditions all year.I’ve had my pineapple planted now for about 2 years. It is now getting the red cone in the middle which I’ve heard is the start of the fruit, but they say this cone changes into a blue flower first. Then after the flower dies off then actual fruit begins to form, and the entire process takes about 6 months. I am so excited to see if it will finally make a pineapple or not. I will keep you posted.
