Avocados grow on trees in bunches.
You can grow an avocado plant from a pit. Put it in water on a shelf with some sunshine and wait.
The fruit grew on a tall tree in Hawaii. It was round and green. It looked like a dinosaur egg.
It was as big as a child’s head. It was heavier than a puppy. What was it? It was the biggest avocado in the world!
