    No idea, but I have a couple laying around right now, so I'll set one up and let you know. I'll start it indoors since it's getting cooler here at night now.

      The toothpick thing is hit or miss. It's easier and more effective to just sprout it like a bean, wrapped in a damp paper towel and put into a plastic bag for a few days. They make nice houseplants.

        Oh that's excellent - I didn't know that. I'll have to try that soon.

          I believe they require both male and female plants is all. Some plants have both parts on the same plant, some have two separate plants. I think Avos are separate.

            About 20 years ago, hubby started doing this. We had about a dozen tall, scrawny avocado plants around our apartment before I told him to stop! And no, they didn't flower or fruit.

              I remember reading it takes something like 7 years for an avocado plant to be mature enough to fruit. And they don't tolerate cold weather well.
