Growing Avocado Plant from seed

I have  always been fascinated with the idea of  growing fruit plant from seed .Although it requires a lot of patience to grow a plant from seed to reach its fruiting stage,but that is joyous part of gardening .And when we talk about fruit like Avocado that is exotic in our region its definitely thrilling.
  It all started when I bought Avocado fruit from grocery and got to know its seed could actually germinate but wasn't sure ,in any case I was throwing it so thought of giving it try .

I prepared potting soil involving 3 : 1 ratio of Cocopeat to Compost  only , no soil at all .


Here's the seed after eating fruit                                                                                                              

After planting it in pot                                                                                                                              

After one month four days here's a sprout                                                                                      

Happy Gardening     !!!
