@WickedValkyrie I’m going to have to start eating Avocados πŸ₯‘ again I want to try that πŸ‘
@Ms.Persnickety this one was already sprouted when I cut into the avocado but so far this guy has been super easy going! And so pretty! I had no idea the babies come out maroon/burgundy! Kinda sad to watch it turn more green as it grows, but it's still super cool to see (:
@WickedValkyrie Is it true that avocado grown from seeds do not produce fruit? I seem to remember having read something like that I just can’t remember where??
@Ms.Persnickety I really don't know... 🀷 I only started this one cuz it was already sprouted so was like "Eh... Science. Why not?" πŸ˜‚πŸ€· I do know that IF it does produce fruit it won't be for the next 10-15 years... Lol
@Ms.Persnickety they do grow fruit but it’s a crapshoot whether or not the fruit will taste good the odds are extremely low though, I forget the exact number. So once a seed begins to grow avocados are grafted so that they produce fruit that tastes good to us. Great video explaining this
@WickedValkyrie if you graft it it will happen much sooner than 15 years and the fruit will taste great too it’s not that hard you could definitely learn how to do it
@Cal3b Thanks for the link, that was very educational, and eventhough I eat neither Skittles, nor Carmels very easy to understand. πŸ₯‘πŸ₯‘
@Cal3b Fascinating!! I'm about to start a couple more (for science) so maybe I'll try it! This one is probably gonna end up as a bonsai tho cuz omg it's just so cute! πŸ˜†πŸ–€
