The Q&A Archives: Planting Peach Pits

Question: I would like to help my son plant a peach seed for him to watch grow. Does the point of the pit go down or up?

Answer: Believe it or not, peach pits will sprout when laid on their sides, seam side up! You've chosen a difficult seed to germinate, though, and you might be happier with the quicker results of planting apple, orange, or even avocado. Good luck with your project!
