Avocados are simple all around us! These green little fruits are one of the most common ingredients of various meals and desserts these days.

However, despite its mild aroma and delicious taste, this fruit has become this popular due to its high nutritional value as well, as it contains high fiber content, heart-healthy fats, vitamin E, C, K, B5, B6, and potassium.

However, as usually, the more popular this fruit becomes, the higher its price on the market is. Thus, grocery stores try to profit as much as possible, so the price of the avocado has been gone up by over 25%.

Fortunately, there is an easy and simple way to grow a small avocado tree at home.

This is how to grow your own organic avocado tree from a seed:

-You should clean a seed well, and make sure you know which end is the bottom, and which is its end. Next, you should stick 4 toothpicks into it, at equal distances apart about halfway down.

Then, place the seed in a glass of water, and the toothpicks will allow it to soak an inch of water.

Place the seed on a warm place with a direct sunlight. Wait for 2-6 weeks, until the stem has grown 6 inches. Then, cut back to 3 inches, and wait once more for the stem to reach the previous length, and for more leaves to grow.
