@clickchick It is, especially as it is outside & quite well developed already.

@Acetaker I think it can be done, but maybe in more favourable conditions than we have here!

@Acetaker @jeatacake I just planted one last week! so now I'm searching GT for tips... You only need to plant the top, which is the part that's usually cut off & thrown out anyway... Matt brought one home from the restaurant where he works! 😀 It still had the top inch or so of fruit on the bottom, which is the part I buried in dirt, with only the leaves sticking out above ground... We have ours planted indoors in a pot, & supposedly the roots don't need too much space 😉 I can't wait to see it
