Avocado Vase

Your love of avocados can thrive long after eating one; just save the seed, grow it and discover the extraordinary tree inside with the innovative Avocado Vase. 

We have refined the traditional method of growing, skipping the toothpicks, and utilizing the opening to cradle the seed keeping it dry as it sprouts and encouraging the roots to flourish freely.  The sinuously shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper; creating a perfect focal point to witness the plant as it develops.

The Avocado Vase’s pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality, allows you to observe the avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants' first stages of life.


"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
