Can I start my ow trees from seeds of a fruit?

Is it possible to start a citrus or avocado tree, or any other fruit tree, from one of its own seeds? Thanks for your help! Glen

Hi Glen, Yes it is possible to start grow trees from seed selected from supermarket produce. However, your tree will take many years to get to fruiting size. Plus, the fruit you do possibly get, might not look or taste like the parent plant since most cultivated crops are hybrids and won't come true to seed. I suggest buying young trees at your local garden center.
