Can an Avocado Plant Survive Without the Pit?

My avocado plant started from seed was doing well. It is about 24" high. I moved it outside for the summer and last night, a critter dug up and ate the pit. Will the plant survive with the pit gone? All else is intact. The roots are all good.

If the roots are good I think your tree will survive.

Possibly. The tree takes nutrients from the pit. It just depends on how old the tree is, and as Judy said, how well the roots are developed.

At 2 ft., the tree no longer needs the seed. I'm surprised it hasn't withered away already. I use to grow avocados as house plants. I stopped when I learned that most varieties can grow as tall as 50 feet. If you plan to remodel any time soon, think cathedral ceilings.
