When I lived in Tennessee a friend of mine introduced me to avocados. She bought two of them, took them to her kitchen and sliced them in half, cutting around the huge pit. She then sprinkled salt on them and handed me a teaspoon. I followed after her and took a bite. It was wonderful. Since then I always buy at least 4 avocados whenever I go to the grocery store. I tried quacamole and I love it, expecially with taquitoes.I tried to grow an avocado from the pit but was unsuccessful. Anyone know how to do it?
