Growing avocados from pits

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The really good ones sold in Kampong Cham city come from Mondulkiri, the local ones are stringy.

I really like avocados, and have done since I was a kid. I think the ones available at that time in Europe were mostly a "warty" variety, maybe from Mexico or Israel, can't remember. I find them really hard to get here, I check Psah Dam Kor the odd time and they often have them but nowhere else seems to. The ones sold in supermarkets are usually rock-hard and are ridiculously expensive, like $2.50 each while you can get a kilo of them for that price at a market.The tuk-a-lok sellers seem to have a constant supply of them though, but they can use hard new/old stringy fruit for these as they get liquidized.
