Avocado Seedling (Persea americana)

Avocado Seedling (Persea americana) (Persea americana (Avocado))

This little avocado seedling popped up right next to the little mango tree last fall. I was mulching this area, so it was from a pit. I pulled out of the ground a few days ago. It most likely won't survive. Photo taken July 11, 2019.

Hi Delonix, did you want to remove it or was it pulled by accident? Is it going to be potted up or binned?

Yes, I intended to to pull it out of the ground. It was put out as compost, and I guess the pit was in the ground. It popped up right next to the little mango tree. There's no way these two trees could be planted so close, as they both become very large trees eventually.

I planted the avocado into a pot and it wilted. If it comes back I'll see what I'll do with it. There's millions of avocado trees in San Diego County, because we're the avocado capital of the U.S.
