SEEDLESS HEIRLOOM AVOCADOS. Two years ago, in January 2021, we casually posted two pictures of a seedless avocado tree on SocMed and it went viral. Members went absolutely crazy, Andie and I were very surprised. It was like watching the numbers on a manual counter go up and up—flick, flick, flick, 600 reactions in an hour, 100 comments in the same amount of time, and dozens of private messages. Can we have a seedling of this amazing and rare avocado? That was two years ago. Tonight, an influencer named JA DE superimposed his video over that of the seedless avocado fruit and seedlings, posted it, and it went viral. again. 1.6M views in only a few hours, this is absolutely amazing.
THE STORY OF THESE AVOCADOS. The late Domingo Umali, a public school teacher, had this brilliant idea one day in 1960 to create the perfect avocado. With no formal training in agriculture, living in a time when “Google” was a numeric term and not a search engine, he taught himself grafting first by working with easy calamansi and later with the more challenging mango. This weird, wonderful avocado was his life’s work, completed towards the end. Fruit long like cucumbers (“the better to scoop you up, my dear”), fruit sweet like there’s honey in there (“the better to diet with you, my dear”), ond fruit that’s extra maligat (viscous), because why not dear? Domingo succeeded in putting these three qualities together after several attempts over several decades—Domingo managed a fourth, final, fantastic quality that makes this variety truly inheritable. TWO YEARS TO FRUIT after you get it, guaranteed. Because we all cannot live or wait forever, can we? This is the avocado of avocados!
