She is growing an avocado tree at home. About one year ago it started with planting a pit in a pot. Every day she takes care of her sprout. It grows strong on its sunny spot in the livingroom. The little tree is now 75 centimeters, it has 3 fragile branches and 45 fresh green leaves. But it will take quite some time before she can harvest her home-grown superfoody avocado ‘s. In the meantime she buys Mexican import at the supermarket.
