Grow your own avocados? Did you know it was easy to grow your own avocados? It really is a simple process and AvoSeedo has the kits to make it a no brainer. So, the next time you make your favorite guacamole recipe, save the pit and start it growing in the AvoSeed kit.
Our small, elaborate tool builds on the idea behind the toothpick method. AvoSeedo is a small plastic bowl that features an indentation with a hole in it. A single avocado seed can be inserted with the “flat” end facing down. Afterwards, AvoSeedo can be placed in a sufficiently large, water-filled pot. Due to its low weight and high displacement, AvoSeedo will remain at the surface all the time; as the water level lowers, AvoSeedo will sink accordingly.
With AvoSeedo, you can significantly raise the success rate when it comes to avocado germination. Without any risk, you can decrease the watering intervals drastically. Only from time to time you will have to check the water level of the pot containing AvoSeedo plus avocado seed. Compared to the original toothpick method, there’s another advantage: the avocado seed doesn’t need to be perforated, reducing the risk of damage (and thus, failed germination efforts).
All in all, AvoSeedo is simply the perfect tool for you to grow avocado trees at home. The demanding germination period can now be mastered with almost no effort – giving your new trees an edge right from the beginning!
This kit includes everything you need other than the avocado pit to grow your own avocados. Setting up the AvoSeedo is super easy, so easy, a child can do it!
Inside the box you will find the grow box, seed bear, cute pool side umbrella, and stickers to customize the design. Set it up and watch as the seed starts to germinate and sprout. The AvoSeedo is, without a doubt, the easiest way to germinate avocados, and your little ones will love taking care of their new pet.
If you have ever used the toothpick method to germinate an avocado pit; this kit will make you wonder why it hasn’t been around before now. It is a germinating miracle! My little ones were excited when they learned they could grow celery and other things by saving the bottom and placing it in water. So, when I explained how they could have their own avocado pet to watch over….yeah they looked at me like I was nuts.
So we got the kit out and all set up. Now they are checking it several times a day. I did not have the heart to tell them it could be weeks before we have an actual plant. But, they will be so excited to watch the process. By the time it is large enough to move outside, the weather should be perfect.
Tips on Using an Avocado
Do you know how to tell if an avocado is ripe?
- First give it a gentle squeeze. It should be soft but not squishy.
- Then gently pull on the small stem. If it comes off easily, your avocado is ripe.
How to Ripen an Avocado
If your avocado is hard to the touch, you can help to ripen it quickly by:
- Placing it in a brown paper bag. Because avocados produce ethylene gas, placing them in a bag and closing the top will trap the gas inside softening the avocado. This process will ripen an avocado in just a couple of days.
- Wrapping it in aluminum foil and baking in your oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit until it softens to the touch. As with the brown bag method, the foil will trap the gas while the heat will speed the ripening process.
Avocado Banana Smoothie Recipe
This is my favorite way to whip up a quick smoothie any time we have avocados and bananas in the house.
1.5 cup milk or favorite juice
1-2 Tablespoons honey, agave, or sweetener
Open avocado by slicing around the pit and twisting to pull apart
Remove the avocado pit and set aside to use in your AvoSeedo kit
Squeeze the fresh avocado into a blender
Peel and break up / slice banana into the blender
Add milk to blender
Secure lid on blender and pulse until blended
Puree until smooth
Remove lid and add honey, agave, or favorite sweetener
Replace lid and pulse several times to blend
Serve in glass or insulated tumbler if the coloring is off putting.
This is a super quick smoothie that can be made from fresh or frozen. When you have extra bananas and avocados getting too ripe, simply smash up together with a fork and press into a plastic ice cube tray. Pop out when frozen and store in a freezer storage bag. To use, drop 2 or 3 cubes into the blender with the rest of the ingredients and whip up a frozen smoothie.
You can also add a handful of fresh greens or other fruit depending on your flavor preference and season. There is no limit to the varieties you can make with just a tweak.
