From food to future plants

Most folks know about turning avocado seeds into a future plant. (Note: If you didn’t know now you do).  But did you know there are other fruit-related food seeds that turn into future vegetable or house plants?

I can honestly say that I only knew about tomato and avocado seeds being utilized, but in a recent search I learnt there were more.  Based on what I read and saw here are some popular ones.

  • Lemon/Orange (supposedly make great fragrance houseplants)
  • Cherry
  • Mango
  • Peppers

A key takeaway from my research is be patient, for it takes time for the seeds to become an actual producing plant/tree.

What do you know about growing fruits/vegetable from store-bought produce?
