If you’re an avid composter, it may seem like a no-brainer to toss avocado skin and pits into the compost bin. And why not? They’re totally organic and biodegradable. But the reality is avocado waste is very slow to decompose and can ruin your compost if you have too much rind in the mix. If you want to compost it, cut the peels into small strips or squares. And for something adventurous, toss a pit into rich, finished compost. It actually could grow into a mini avocado tree.
