This sounds like something different. I've planted avocado from pits and they develop into a nice tree with large eliptical glossy dark green leaves. A typical tropical tree looking thing. They are not frost tolerant I don't think although they must survive mild frost given they are grown in Florida and California.Jace King said:Will avacodo make it through the winter. I got one for free last summer and planted it oustide. I didnt even think of it as a houseplant. Quite and interesting looking plant, just a large stick with with a giant avacodo flower on top.
