Can I grow an avocado plant from an avocado pit?
Herkimer County New York
Yes you should be able to. Here is a website from the University of California which covers details of germination and growing on. Of course in your climate you will not be able to grow the plant outdoors all year round, but will have to bring it indoors in the winter. But this is a fun project to try.
